Apply to attend a fly fishing retreat on the beautiful Mount Falcon estate

Ladies who have, or have had, breast cancer are invited to apply to attend a Casting for Recovery retreat to be held in the grounds of the beautiful Mount Falcon Country Estate near Ballina, Co Mayo. Click here to apply. 


Casting for Recovery UK & Ireland is a medical charity and educational initiative for women who have or have had breast cancer. Free-of-charge 2 ½-day retreats are offered using a unique formula of fly fishing, counselling and education to promote mental and physical healing. CfR is very simple: ladies apply to attend a retreat (with medical clearance) and are entered into a ballot.

If successful they will then join us at the beautiful Mount Falcon estate from 12-14 September for medical support with a focus on wellness, and a strong outdoor element which includes entry level instruction into fly fishing, a tranquil pastime which requires no strength and is therefore perfect for those recovering from breast cancer.

Countryside Alliance is a founding donor of Casting for Recovery and a maximum of 14 ladies attend each retreat, enabling it to feel intimate and not overwhelming. To apply to attend this retreat in Co Mayo from 12-14 September click here.
