JACK O’Connor is the country director for Movember here in Ireland. I came across him when, seven years ago, I raised more than €20,000 for Movember, and this amount was boosted to well over €33,000 when colleagues in The Irish Field and the Irish Farmers Journal joined in the effort.

Jack contacted me recently and told me: “It’s no secret, the past couple of years have been rough, but we’ve soldiered on. It has me feeling more inspired than ever to take on Movember 2021 with our global community. Because men’s health is still in crisis – mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer still need our help”
