About Us

The Éist Cancer Support Centre started life as the Carlow Breast Cancer Support Group which was set up by a group of breast cancer survivors in 2004. The centre opened to the public in October 2012.

In May 2021 we realised our dream and moved into our new centre at 46 Idrone Park, Carlow and a new chapter has begun.

Éist Objectives
