The (opens in a new window)Mater Hospital based (opens in a new window)Dublin Neurological Institute is currently holding a fundraiser to ensure it can continue to offer high quality, multi disciplinary care to patients with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, headache, neuropathy and muscular dystrophy. 

The Coronavirus pandemic has had a serious knock on effect on the DNI's ability to fundraise and donations are now urgently needed to ensure frontline series are available to all patients. 
This year approximately 44,000 people across Ireland will be diagnosed with a neurological condition, that’s in addition to the 700,000 people already diagnosed. However, Ireland has the lowest number of Consultant Neurologists per head of population in the entire western world. The Dublin Neurological Institute will go a long way towards improving the care and services available for neurological patients but they need your help to continue funding this essential facility.
Should you wish to donate the DNI has launched a  (opens in a new window)Go Fund Me page where every entrant will be eligible to win a prize, first prize being a training session for any club with Gaelic Football Manager  (opens in a new window)Jim Gavin - one of the best managers in the modern game and winner of 6 All Ireland Senior Football Finals.
