Welcome to Early Onset Parkinson’s Ireland

It is estimated that there is about 1800 people living with EOPD in Ireland. Early Onset Parkinson’s Disease was set up in 2021 as a company limited by guarantee and operating as EOPD.ie. EOPD.ie is a registered charity.
EOPD.ie’s, primary audience are people diagnosed with Parkinson’s earlier in life, including Juvenile Parkinson’s and Young Onset Parkinson’s in addition we support all people on their Parkinson’s journey, regardless of age.

EOPD.ie has announced that it has received confirmation of charitable status from the Charities Regulator.

Commenting on the awarding of charitable status, Mary Casserly, Chairperson of EOPD.ie said:

“This is a very significant day for the Early Onset Parkinson’s community in Ireland.

There is a common misconception that Parkinson’s is a condition which affects only older people. However, it is estimated that more than 20% of people are diagnosed before the age of 60. Our aim is to provide support for people diagnosed with Parkinson’s, in particular those who may be in employment, bringing up a young family or having to live with this condition for a substantial portion of their life.”
