Epilepsy Ireland is the national organisation for epilepsy in Ireland. We are a registered charity both with the Charities Regulatory Authority (No. 20010553) and with the Revenue Commissioners (CHY 6170). We are also a Company Limited by Guarantee, registered with the Companies Office (Brainwave The Irish Epilepsy Association CLG, Registered Number 77588).

We are governed in accordance with our Constitution by a Board of Directors comprised of people with epilepsy, family members of people with epilepsy, medical professionals, business professionals and others with a direct interest in our mission and vision.

The Board is advised by a number of sub-committees and is responsible for the overall control and strategic direction of the charity. The Board's decisions are put into effect by the Chief Executive and the Management Team.

Our Board members and members of our sub-committees are volunteers who donate freely their time, skills and experience. None of our directors receive any remuneration for their service.
