MS Day 2021 Sunday, May 30th endeavors to raise awareness for people living with Multiple Sclerosis. In today’s current climate, the day takes on new importance as the 9,000 people in Ireland living with MS have faced various challenges throughout the pandemic.

The theme for World MS Day 2020-2022 is ‘connections’. The MS Connections campaign is all about building community connection, self-connection and connections to quality care.

Teresa Cahill from Roscommon and Orla Marron from Monaghan told their stories of living with MS to Joe Finnegan on Thursday's show.


MS Ireland are launching a Virtual Balloon Race where they hope to have 9,000 virtual balloons flying, one for each person in Ireland living with MS. Using algorithms, live weather systems and Google maps, our virtual balloon racing platform allows balloons to behave, fly and burst just like real balloons. The balloons will be virtually launched from our Care Centre in Bushy Park on 30th May at More information visit
