A special women's health night turned out to be a winner as organisers HeartBeat experienced their largest ever attendance.

WOMEN'S HEALTH: The HeartBeat Special Ladies Health Night saw its biggest ever attendance.

Held on Tuesday night in the Parish Centre, Park Road, the HeartBeat Special Ladies Health Night kept the two nurses busy in the blood pressure clinic beforehand.

Dr Mary McCaffrey, one of the county's most well-known obstetrician and gynaecologist, was at her best on the night. She covered all health sources of concern clearly and effectively.

And there was great interest from the floor during the Q&A session as women had many questions about their health concerns.

Then Mary and the two nurses, Anna O'Donoghue and Triona Casey, took time out to have one-to-one chats with people afterwards.

"It was a night where people who had worries or concerns about personal health issues got help and clarity and support," said HeartBeat treasurer Lucy Clifford.

"We were delighted with the numbers that came along, especially those who travelled from as far as county Limerick to be with us."
