The event was started five years ago by Deirdre Featherstone, who while going through treatment for breast cancer had a brainwave.

Deirdre says " There are a lot of women undertaking this who have been through cancer and of course loads of people who have been affected by it. With our laughter, scars, dodgy boobs or in a lot of cases only one or none, we aim to have the best day."

Organisers say the day is emotional, uplifting and also the best craic

Aoibheanns Pink Tie was set up in 2010 by Mick Rochford and Jimmy Norman after the tragic loss of Jimmy’s daughter Aoibheann to cancer aged just 8 years.
