With a world record-breaking 5,025 brave women have bared all on a Wicklow beach in June, the fact that over half a million has been raised in the fight of that fecker cancer is yet another incredible achievement for this annual event.

Mainly because everyone involved has been dancing cheek-to-cheeky-cheek.
