Cancer charities snub Ireland’s first Page Three model

A glamour model has spoken of her disappointment at being snubbed by two breast cancer charities who rebuffed her offer to raise money on their behalf.
Claire Tully, (24) a Trinity College biochemistry and immunology graduate and Page 3 girl, spoke after the Marie Keating Foundation and Breast Cancer Ireland turned down her offers of money.
The cash was to come from her fundraising activities when she appears on RTE's charity show Failte Towers next month.
Yet her debut as Ireland's first topless model earlier this year resulted in a polite "no thank-you" from both charities.
However, she has since lined up the National Breast Cancer Research Institute at NUI Galway as her chosen charity and has no hard feelings towards the other charities.
