The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing information, support, and resources to individuals affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). Multiple sclerosis is a progressive disease characterized by loss of myelin from nerve fibers within the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). Myelin is a fatty substance that forms a protective, insulating sheath around certain nerve fibers, serving as an electrical insulator. The severity of MS may vary from case to case. Associated symptoms may include numbness, tingling, weakness, incoordination, visual abnormalities, and speech disturbances. The MS Society of Ireland was established in 1963 and currently consists of approximately six regional offices, 40 branches, and a network of community volunteers across Ireland. The society's programs and services include offering a helpl ine for any queries concerning MS, providing respite care, and conducting seminars and workshops for affected individuals, family members, and other caregivers. In addition, the society promotes and funds MS research, offers support services to its voluntary branches, and maintains a web site.
