X-HALE: the story so far

Since 2011, the Irish Cancer society has provided training and funding to over 225 inspiring groups to take part in X-HALE. Learn more about X-HALE.

It’s been a blast so far and we’ve been absolutely blown away by the powerful messages young people have shared through your smoking prevention films and projects. You have shown us what the #TheXGeneration are made of. 

We are thrilled to see young people driving the movement towards Ireland’s first smoke free generation.
