Everything You Need To Know About Daffodil Day 2022

For the first time since 2019, communities across Ireland will once again turn daffodil yellow.

For the first time in three years, Daffodil Day celebrations are back in-person and better than ever, with over 7,000 volunteers set to be out in force collecting funds across the country. As one of the most important days of the year, everybody will be turning daffodil yellow as they take to the streets to raise funds and give hope to cancer patients and their families, supporting the Irish Cancer Society.

Cancer takes so much from so many. It takes big days, little days, and everything in-between. It replaces them with treatment days and recovery days. But together we have the power to take these days back from cancer. Which is what Daffodil Day is all about!

97% of the charity’s income is from donations, and money raised on Daffodil Day will help fund life-saving cancer research and support services including Night Nursing, Volunteer Driving, the Support Line, free counselling and the Society’s 13 Daffodil Centers.
