Multiple Sclerosis Ireland is the only national organization providing information, support and advocacy services to the MS community. They work with people with MS, their families and health professionals. With the MS understood Cafe Roadshow, MS Ireland aims to communicate and raise awareness about the disease while drinking a café or tea.


What is Multiple Sclerosis? This is a disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). The central nervous system acts like a switchboard sending electrical messages along the nerves to various parts of the body. These electrical messages instruct the body to perform various tasks, such as movement or thought. In MS, the myelin breaks down or becomes scarred. This distorts or even blocks the flow of messages, resulting in the many symptoms of MS.


This morning I stopped by the Ms café bus parked in Clondalkin. It was great to have a coffee and experience some of the everyday obstacles people living with MS. It was weird to feel the floor spongy under my feet and the fuzzy writing of the menu table” said Cllr Higgins”

On Saturday October 14th at 11am people of all ages and fitness levels are invited to Commercials Hurling Club to take part in fun run under the supervision of Olympian runner, John Treacy. The event will be a short 5k course that will finish back at the clubhouse for entertainment celebrating everything Irish.

"Rás Ráth Cúil 5k is a great example of encouraging families to get fit together and use their cúpla focail. Exercise is so beneficial for people of all ages and it's great to see community initiatives encouraging people, particularly those who wouldn't usually run, to lace-up and take on the challenge," commented local Councillor, Emer Higgins.

"Taking part in the event will be John Treacy and also Giggles the clown who will be encouraging people to chat as Ghaeilge along the route. Commercials Hurling Club plays an important and positive role in our community and their committee is fantastic for promoting fitness, an Ghaeilge agus an cultúr. Get your running shoes on and mark 14th October in your diary! You can register online through popupraces.com searching for commercials and ras 5k," said Cllr. Emer Higgins.
