RTE broadcaster Maura Derrane has lent her support to the Pearl of Wisdom campaign.

It asks women to take a free smear test, which can detect early warning signs for cervical cancer.

Around 250 women get the disease annually and it causes 80 deaths. The Irish Family Planning Association launched the campaign yesterday with a helping hand from the RTE star.
