Men are being urged to 'make connections' as Men's Health Week kicks off today.


The HSE is encouraging all men to support their health and wellbeing by contacting those they've been apart from by phone or if safe, in person.

A third of all men who die, lose their lives to cancer and 42 per cent of them are overweight.

There's also a focus this week on supporting men subjected to domestic violence.

Kathrina Bentley is CEO of Men's Aid, which is hosting a webinar today.

She joined Clem Ryan on Monday's edition of Kildare Today.
