More volunteers needed for annual Dip in the Nip for cancer

Sunday 9th of September will see local women strip off at a secret location somewhere along the Northeast coast and go for a Dip in the Nip in aid of the Oncology Unit based in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital and the organisers are looking for more women to take part.

This year NECRET, who support the Unit in it’s fight against cancer and organise this annual event, are looking forward to making it even bigger, better and of course as always lots of fun. With a few very nice surprises this year added for good measure!!

Sinead Meehan, one of the 254 Dippers who did the event in 2017, offers the following description: 

"Amazing. Fun and laughter from start to finish. The event is so tastefully done, nudity doesn't even enter your head. Beautiful refreshments afterward and all to raise much needed and important funds for NECRET".

Drogheda woman Gay Woods sums up this wonderful event by saying

“Without a doubt, this has been the most amazing experience... The feeling of camaraderie with all the other women, the fun and the too many laughs to mention. The entire day is so memorable”

Registration is now open at 

Alternatively you can email or text/call 086 777 3294.
