Our Family Fun Day is heading South this year, with a big day out planned for children/parents with epilepsy and their families in Fota Island Wildlife Resort in Co. Cork – and you’re invited!!

Families often tell us that their child who lives with epilepsy has never met or interacted with another person with epilepsy. Epilepsy Ireland’s Family Fun Day is an annual event offered by our organisation aimed at bringing families from across Ireland together in a fun environment – where those affected by the condition can meet with others in a similar situation, in a fun environment.

Another benefit of the day will be to introduce children with epilepsy to others living with the condition.

This is one of our most popular events of the year – so if you’re interested in joining us on the day, please book today to avoid disappointment.

We can’t wait to have a great day with families on June 10th!
