- Lions Clubs – Ready to Help, Worldwide
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
The World's Largest Service Club Organization
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.
About Mayo Cancer Support Association Mayo Cancer Support Association was formed in August, 1999. It was formed by a group of volunteers who recognised the need for the service through personal experience and working with persons diagnosed with cancer. Initially the service was run from the Family Centre, Castlebar. Due to the growing demand for these services and with the help and support of the people of Mayo, on the 14th April, 2003, the service moved to its own premises at Rock Rose House at 32 St. Patrick’s Avenue, Castlebar.
Nestled in central Connaught at the junction of the N17 and the N60 national routes, the town of Claremorris is situated midway between Galway and Sligo in the heart of beautiful Mayo. The town derived its name from Maurice de Prendergast, a Norman who came to Ireland in 1169.
Claremorris is a vibrant and thriving town steeped in history and benefits greatly from its agricultural hinterland and very central location in the province of Connaught. Claremorris is an area of rolling drumlins, eskers, woods and impressive lakes. Westwards from Claremorris, looking over a totally unspoilt environment, Croagh Patrick can be seen in the distance.
There are a number of excellent B&B's and Hotels in the Claremorris area. The following link contains a list of the places within the locality worth visiting during your stay in Claremorris http://towns.mayo-ireland.ie/WebXfirstname.lastname@example.orgXt6icdNBnJ.0@.ee7a177
