Smother cast and crew visit Clare 250 Cancer Centre

ESB Apprentice Moneypoint

CLARE 250 Cancer Centre welcomed some of the cast and crew of the hit TV thriller Smother for a couple of days filming at the woodland retreat in Ballygriffey recently.

Due to the pandemic, the day centre, which provides a haven away from daily life, for those going through cancer, has not been able to raise any money for the last two years.

Fundraising activities get underway once again with a Coffee Day on Saturday, May 21, and a chance to support a local cyclist on the annual cycle which takes place on Sunday, May 22.
