GONE: Susan Stack showing her ponytail after it was cut off for charity.

A Firies woman has taken the plunge and shaved off her hair all in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.

AWAY IT GOES: Susan nervously watching on in the mirror as her hairdresser cut her long hair off.

Susan Stack was itching to do something to help a charity whose fundraising has been impacted by the pandemic.

She explained that while she's loving her whole new look, it had been someone on her mind to do for charity for some time.

"I decided a few years ago I wanted to challenge myself if I could grow my hair and stop dying it!" she told the Killarney Advertiser.

"As the time grew nearer I thought why not do a fundraiser and shave it for Irish Cancer Society instead! So I built up the courage to go ahead with it. Cancer has touched everyone in some way."

She added that she has done a few challenge fundraisers over the past year.

"Trying to help these charities at a time like this is important. Every penny counts and with everyone's support we can make the difference! I only did something small and at least it can grow back!"

She added a huge thanks to everyone who supported her along the way.

"I'd like to thank everyone who supported me on the day; Expose Hair and Beauty in Firies who shaved and dyed my hair, make-up by Lorraine in Aherns Pharmacy in Farranfore, and Tara Donoghue Laing who took the photos, and especially everyone who donated!

And she now plans to go the extra mile, literally.

"The fundraiser is ongoing until the end of June as I'm going to walk 300km to keep the fundraiser up, whatever it takes!"

To donate go to Facebook: 'Susan's Shave or Dye for Irish Cancer Society'.
