Epilepsy Ireland have appealed to the public to support their National Fundraising Week, Rose Week, which takes place from the 11th -17th October.

The charity has experienced a 50% drop in fundraising since the start of the pandemic, alongside an increase in demand for their one-to-one support services for people with epilepsy and their families.

With the budget taking place this coming Tuesday, Epilepsy Ireland have once again written to Ministers Heather Humphreys, Paschal Donohoe and Michael McGrath regarding our Budget proposals to improve access to Free Travel passes for people with epilepsy.

We believe our proposals are both fair & reasonable – and that Budget 22 represents the perfect opportunity to address this longstanding issue for people with epilepsy and their families.
