Kilkenny’s Vicky Phelan taking a step back from campaigning

Cervical Check campaigner Vicky Phelan says she will be pulling back from campaigning in order to focus on her health and family.

The Mooncoin woman, who is set to lead the St Patricks Day Parade in Kilkenny next month, has taken to Twitter to explain that she has been very ill for the past few weeks, and spent almost a week in hospital.

However Vicky says a CT scan shows her cancer has not spread.

She says she does not know what lies ahead and needs to prioritise her health and family but will still use her voice to campaign on women’s health.
