The lord mayor of Cork, Cllr John Buttimer (Fine Gael, pictured), revealed that he has been diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Mr Buttimer, who is a brother of Fine Gael TD Jerry, is to start chemotherapy tomorrow.

A course of radiotherapy will follow.

Hodgkin's lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system, ranks as one of the most treatable forms of cancers if diagnosed early.

"The prognosis is good and I intend to take a very positive approach and attitude to this," he said.
