The past year has been one full of changes and we've got a slightly minor one to announce regarding this year's Purple Day® in Ireland.
Instead of March 26th this year, we will be marking Purple Day® in Ireland on March 25th. The reason we have moved Purple Day® is because this year, the day has fallen on the same day as the Irish Cancer Society's Daffodil Day.
We recognise that many of our followers and supporters would like to support both awareness & fundraising days so we have made the decision to move Purple Day® forward a day here in Ireland. We will be getting a one day head start on the international awareness efforts so let's set an example to other countries and turn Ireland Purple on Purple Day®!!

About Purple Day®
Purple Day® is an international grassroots campaign founded by Canadian woman, Cassidy Megan. The day sees people across the world encouraged to wear purple in the name of epilepsy awareness and well-known buildings across the globe also light up purple in recognition of the estimated 50 million people living with epilepsy across the globe.
Globally, the day takes place on March 26th. However, the day is being celebrated in Ireland this year on March 25th. It was identified by Epilepsy Ireland that the day was landing on the same day as Daffodil day and we know that many of our supporters would like to support both days and we therefore decided to lead the global awareness raising by moving Purple Day® in Ireland to March 25th.
