Men matter!

Men, on the island of Ireland, experience a unequal burden of ill-health. Men are dying too young. Male life expectancy is just 75.8 years (Republic of Ireland - 75.1 years; Northern Ireland - 76.4 years). This is almost 6 years younger than that of females and, for certain groups of men, it is younger still. Several things work against men. They tend to smoke and drink more than women and they don't seek medical help as often as women.
