Time, Safe, Stay

International Epilepsy Day took place earlier this week on the 13th February 2023. We introduced our new campaign highlighting how Time, Safe, Stay needs to become general knowledge amongst the public.

We’d like to thank all those featured in the videos for agreeing to be part of our campaign and allowing themselves to highlight this important message.

While you may have seen our campaign itself, there is possibly a few things that you potentially missed as well – so we’ve highlighted them below for you to look back on!

  • Throughout the week, audio adverts have been running on Today Fm promoting our key message of Time, Safe, Stay – with our patron Rick O’Shea once again lending us his voice this year (as he has countless times before!)
  • Also, over on Spotify – a music themed general knowledge ad has been running this week promoting our key message – again, thanks to Rick
  • If you got a print version of the Irish Times, you would’ve seen a familiar message within the pages….
  • Irish Times Time, Safe, Stay ad


















  • Meanwhile, if you were checking out the latest news on either the Irish Independent or Irish Times, you would’ve seen the key message of our campaign as well through our digital ads!

These are just some of the highlights from our campaign this year and we’d like to thank everyone who made this possible – especially our members, supporters and volunteers for sharing and shouting our message far and wide!

Increasing awareness of epilepsy is not just for a day though – so if you or someone you know hasn’t already, encourage them to visit our ‘International Epilepsy Day 2023’ landing page and make Time, Safe, Stay part of your general knowledge today!

Together we can achieve a society where no person’s life is limited by epilepsy.
