Longford mother Lynsey Bennett to appear on the Late Late Show

Lynsey Bennett (32) is fighting cervical cancer for the third time

Tomorrow night, Ryan Tubridy will speak to 32-year-old Lynsey Bennett, who this week settled her CervicalCheck High Court action.

Speaking outside court yesterday, the Ennybegs woman, who is seriously ill with cancer, said;

 "I stand here today extremely grateful to everyone who has supported me and the girls since my first diagnosis in 2017 – my family, friends, strangers, and of course my legal team.

"I send my love to all the women and their families who have fought and continue to fight our heartbreaking illness.

"I can now focus on my own fight to stay alive as long as I can.

"To my daughters, Zoe and Haley, I hope I have done enough to secure you both a future free from financial worries and that even with me not here to guide you that you can both pursue your dreams and remember Mammy loves you."
