ARC Cancer Support Centres

Cause Description

ARC Cancer Support Centre is the result of a meeting between Des Carney, Professor of Oncology at the Mater Hospital, and Barbara Cosgrave, a business woman, in the early 1990s. Des's dream was to set up a support centre for newly diagnosed people with cancer, their family members and friends. ARC is the only centre in Dublin providing this unique service.

In 1993, 65 Eccles Street was purchased with voluntary donations. It was refurbished and officially opened in 1996. Since then it has grown to such an extent that in November 2009 we opened a second ARC House on South Circular Road, Dublin.
