Movember: Will YOUR Fella/Da/Cousint/Brother be Taking Part?

By | November 3 2010 | 13 Comments


It’s November 3rd and that means Movember is in full, moustache-twirling swing. Dedicated to raise prostate cancer awareness and funds, it’s a light-hearted way to get men engaged in a serious health issue that really concerns them.

While we get to indulge in all things pink during October for breast cancer awareness month, fellas get to grow gnarly ‘staches in November and use their hirsute powers to get sponsorship funds from friends, family and co-workers. This year, Movember Ireland’s campaign will benefit Action Prostate Cancer, a programme of The Irish Cancer Society.

The peeps behind Movember want you to gently encourage your nearest and dearest male relatives to get involved in the fundraising efforts by registering on As an incentive, one of you will bag yourself a Mo Pack to help with the motivation. It contains:

  • Movember Cookbook
  • Kent Movember Edition Moustache Comb
  • Old Spice
  • Dermalogica goodies
  • and a special edition Freshmilk Movember tee

THE QUESTION: What month does Movember take place in?

HOW TO ENTER: send your answer along with your NAME and FULL POSTAL ADDRESS to

THE RULES: you MUST be signed up to one of our newsletters to be eligible; one entry per person; you must be a resident of Ireland (north or south); no cash alternative is possible, our decision is final and the competition will close at 5pm on 1oth November 2010. We never share your details with any third party.

  • Sha Sha says:

    ummm… i meant firestation..obv..

  • LuLuBabe says:

    My husband swore last year he’d do it properly this year. I must remind him!

  • LuLuBabe says:

    Sha Sha, I assumed it was something to do with forestry, and had this vision of burly moustachioed lumberjacks :) Very, very Monty Python!

  • Sha Sha says:

    Ha!! what a fabulously grotesque image!! FIRE-men definitely works better…if you can get the Village people imagery out of your noggin…DOH!

    oh movember… i had a first date with a guy the other day. He’d shaved his head totally smooth for his Halloween costume yet had started his movember tash!! Really hoping that by date 2 he won’t look so odd lol

  • Orla says:

    Imagine if all the laydeez gave up the bleachin’ & waxin’ for one month. EEP!

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    This is good fun for a good cause. My husband has a tache and beard all year round – he’s one of those Desperate Dan stubbly type blokes who could grow a tache whilst waiting for the kettle to boil. I’d be afraid to see what’s under it if he shaved it off.

  • Grá says:

    Cousint ha! And I thought only Galway people had “Cousints” :D

  • Kitty In The City says:

    My poor fella couldn’t grow a tache if his life depended on it. He has a fine head of hair though.

  • cornflakegirl says:

    This is a great idea for a great cause. Must remind my Dad and uncles that they said they’d all do it. Two of my uncles have beaten prostate cancer, one of them only earlier this year and they lost an uncle and grandfather to it.

    Also think my brother and his mates are doing it too which should be funny cos my bros facial hair gross really weirdly. He’ll look a right state by the end of Movember, hehe.
