Movember is back! And some of Leinster and UCD's finest sports stars were on hand to kick it off.

A fantastic cause and foundation, UCD Sports' Georgina Dwyer brought together some of UCD and indeed Ireland's biggest stars to show their support as Noel McGrath, Tipperary hurler and UCD graduate, joined Leinster's Garry Ringrose, Luke McGrath and Josh van der Flier and a host of other UCD athletes for the launch event on the campus.

The Movember Foundation is a global charity committed to men living happier, healthier, longer lives. Since 2003, millions have joined the men's health movement, raising €485m and funding over 1,000 programmes focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, poor mental health and physical inactivity.

This year in UCD, organisers of Movember want to emphasise the importance of activity in people's lives both in preventing disease and in the recovery of illness.
