Men across Carlow and Kilkenny are being urged to look after themselves – as International Men’s Health week begins.
Irish men are experiencing higher death rates than women – and they die on average four and a half years younger.
Local men are being encouraged to make small changes to their lifestyles and life choices.
To mark international men’s health week, a free magazine has been launched with tips on leading a healthier life.
It’s available on www.mhfi.org.
