FORMER Kerry football captain Dara Ó Cinnéide has teamed up with cancer support charity, Recovery Haven Kerry, as the charity marks its 10th anniversary in 2020.

The three-time All Ireland-winning captain has come on board as charity ambassador, having been hugely impressed with the vital support services the charity offers to cancer patients and their families across Kerry.

Dara was approached for the role by friend and Recovery Haven board member, Eddie Murphy – himself a former footballer and Kerry hurling manager.

Having learned about the services, and having discussed it further with his wife Jean who works in the Palliative Care unit at UHK, Dara was delighted to get on board.

“It was my wife who explained fully what Recovery Haven was all about and when I heard about wonderful services they provide to cancer patients in Kerry, I was really impressed,” Dara said.

“The charity fills an awful lot of gaps in cancer care and has so much to offer people that I was delighted to come on board as ambassador and help support and promote their great work in any way I can.”

PR & Marketing officer with Recovery Haven, Marisa Reidy, said that the charity is indebted to Dara for offering his time to help spread the word of what Recovery Haven is all about.

“To have someone as well known and respected as Dara come on board to help promote Recovery Haven is amazing and we are so excited and honoured to work with him in 2020 as we mark our 10th anniversary.”
