Welcome to the Narcolepsy Ireland website!
Narcolepsy Ireland is a voluntary organisation, which was set-up to help and support people in Ireland with Narcolepsy (and Irish People with Narcolepsy all over the world!). It provides a source of information and support to their loved ones, carers, employers and friends. We hope that information regarding the condition will be more readily available thanks to this site, and we will always endeavour to update here regularly with the newest research and news from the Narcolepsy community.
As narcolepsy and cataplexy are rare, there is often a lack of awareness of these life-long conditions. We hope that the information provided on this website will give people a better understanding of the condition and provide insights into the lives of people with narcolepsy. If you suspect you might have narcolepsy, we hope that the information on this website will be useful to you. We will endeavour to make public the latest news and research being carried out around the world.
For the Narcolepsy Community
It is estimated that 2-5 in 2ooo people have symptoms of narcolepsy/cataplexy. This website is for you, to find out more about Narcolepsy and to gain an understanding of the range of conditions associated with it. Read about Irish people living with this condition, and share your tips/ advice etc. Please get in contact with us if you would like to contribute your story.
