Cystic Fibrosis Ireland’s is looking for  volunteers in Kilkenny to help with their annual flagship fundraising appeal 65 Roses Day on April 10.

Ireland has among some of the most severe strains of Cystic Fibrosis and also has the highest incidence in the world, with three times the rate of the United States and the rest of the European Union.
