National Epilepsy Week has grown in prominence in recent years and is another vital platform to raise awareness of epilepsy in Ireland.

The week is more central to the awareness raising efforts for our colleagues in the UK, and it seen as the central focus of their awareness raising initiatives for the year. However, Epilepsy Ireland always take part in the week to help raise awareness in Ireland as well. Primarily, we use the week to share stories on our social media channels from those living with epilepsy, to help support others living with epilepsy at various stages of their journey with the condition.

Every year, a theme is chosen in consultation with all the organisations involved and is adapted by each organisation in order to raise awareness of epilepsy.  To see previous examples of the stories shared during National Epilepsy Week, visit the 'Awareness' section of our website. 

If you would like to get involved in the awareness raising efforts associated with National Epilepsy Week, please email our Advocacy & Communications Manager Paddy McGeoghegan on
