A huge congratulations to Oliver Kilmartin, whose continued passion for raising awareness of epilepsy was acknowledged by the International Bureau for Epilepsy at the recent 34th International Epilepsy Congress.
Well, where did that Summer go?!!
Whether you can believe it or not, the kids are back at school and on what is the traditional back to school day, we wanted to remind everyone of some of the resources that we have available for parents of children with epilepsy and the school community as a whole.
We are delighted to see Epilepsy Ireland supported research being featured across mainstream media today - with features included in RTÉ, The Irish Times, the Irish Examiner, the Irish Daily Mirror and the Irish Daily Mail.
The research concerns whether untrained pet dogs can predict epileptic seizures and was conducted by Dr. Neil Powell of Queens University Belfast.
We are delighted to be expanding our Communications team at Epilepsy Ireland through a newly created position of Communications Executive.
