Who We Are

Parkinson’s Ireland is made up of eighteen Branches throughout Ireland, in addition to a Central Office based in Dublin.

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors are all volunteers and give their time and expertise freely. The Board meets approximately once per month with short breaks in the summer and winter. The Board are elected each year at our AGM by rotation, and from time-to-time Board members are co-opted.


Parkinson’s Ireland is made up of eighteen Branches throughout Ireland. Each Branch is operated by volunteers and these Branches form part of the national organisation.

At our national office there are five paid staff – our CEO Shane O’Brien, our Helpline Manager, Pauline Mahady; our Parkinson’s Nurses Lisa Wynne and Kathy Foley; and Ruth Delaney is responsible for Communications and Fundraising.
