Two Dublin sisters have urged Irish women to get smear tests after both were found to have abnormal cervical cell activity.
Ashling O'Regan was 28 when doctors discovered she had pre-cancerous changes, while her sibling Aoife was 25.
"The C-word makes you panic," Ashling told the Irish Sun. "If I had put it off, I'd be having a very different conversation now."
Smear tests are free for women aged between 25 and 60.
