Looking after our community always
Our team of healthcare experts are dedicated to looking after you always – not only that, we are also enthusiastic supporters of the community and have been donating our energy and resources to initiatives, charities and events for over 15 years.
Let’s take a look:
Launch of #layabigscreen to coincide with our First Birthday
To celebrate our first birthday we launched an initiative to give away €100,000 worth of free cardiac screening to thousands of members of sports and social clubs around Ireland this summer. The Big Screen is open to all types of sports organisations, no matter how big or small, or what level of skill or fitness is involved from rugby clubs, swimming groups, dance troops, hill walking societies, karate clubs, GAA clubs and more. To be in with a chance to win clubs should submit their nomination today on www.facebook.com/LayaHealthcare.
Cheetah Run - Fota Wildlife Park
We are really looking forward to running on the wild side at this year's Cheetah Run in Fota Wildlife Park. Along with John Buckley Sports, we are delighted to co-sponsor this event which takes place on Thursday May 16th at 8pm.
The unique race gives people the rare chance to run past Cheetahs, European Bison, Penguins and Lemurs amongst other animals on the evening.
Former World Champion and Olympic Silver medallist Sonia O’Sullivan got a taste of the race recently when she ran 3 laps of the park with members of Eagle AC.

Laya Healthcare Street Performance World Championships Launch
We are proud to sponsor this free, fun-filled family event again this year. With a focus on ‘laughing out loud’, we are extremely excited about the introduction of a dedicated ‘laya healthcare lol arena,’ which will be home to the Ministry of Silly Ideas.
As the saying goes, laughter is the best medicine and we're certain that the 2013 Laya Healthcare Street Performance World Championships will be full of smiles, giggles, hearty laughs and more! Click here for more information on this exciting event.
National Healthcare Conference
Our sponsorship of the National Healthcare Conference gave us an opportunity to announce a novel fundraising campaign. To coincide with the launch of our Twitter account @layahealthcare we organised a hashtag campaign whereby for every mention of #layanhc we donated €1 to Daffodil Day. This resulted in an overall donation of €5000 for this great cause.
The Munster Rugby U17 Blitz
We were delighted to be involved in the Munster Rugby U17 Blitz in aid of The Shine Centre for Autism. The blitz took place in the Presentation Brothers College Rugby Grounds, Wilton, Cork on Friday 15th of March 2013.
Shine Ladies Lunch
Laya healthcare sponsored the inaugural Shine Ladies Lunch held in Cork’s Clarion hotel in June 2012.
Sinead Desmond from TV3 was the guest speaker at the event and a great day was had by all.
Shine Centre for Autism
Smarter Senses Project for Autism
This groundbreaking project enables children with autism to reap the benefit of modern technology.
Many children with autism are visual learners and communicate through a Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS). iPads donated by the Laya Healthcare team give the children access to a range of pictures and symbols instantaneously, speeding up the process of communication and allowing more time for practical learning.
Autism Jigsaw Conference
“Putting the pieces together” was the underlying theme of this two day conference which brought together in one venue all of the professionals, service providers and suppliers who support autism services in Ireland.
The Laya Healthcare sponsored event gave parents, families, carers and people with autism vital access to information, innovation, technology and equipment.
This year, the team was honoured for its “Outstanding Contribution” at Shine’s annual Fundraising “Valentine’s Ball”.
Hope Foundation Lunch
The Hope Foundation helps under-priviledged children in Calcutta gain access to protection, education, healthcare and nutrition. Over the last two years, Laya Healthcare has been key sponsor of the Hope Foundation Lunch, one of the most important fundraising events on the Hope calendar.
At Laya Healthcare, we recognise just how vital sport is to the health and wellbeing of our community. We have been the main sponsor of Fermoy GAA Club since 2006, and last year we began working with Cobh Pirates Rugby Club for the first time.
