Thursday January 25 2018 01:00 PM

Continuing with our introduction of the 2018 MS & Me Blog team, let us introduce a few more members of our team.

RosieRosie Farrell

A graphic designer and sub-editor, the Sligo native now lives in Dublin with her husband Niall and their little dog Trixie. Rosie was diagnosed with MS in 2015. We look forward to her honest portrayal of what her life with MS has become, how she copes and the lessons she continues to learn. 

CiaraCiara O’Meara

Tipperary woman and general nurse, Ciara, has a deep passion for travelling and volunteer work around the globe. Add in her studies, a research dissertation, coupled with relapsing remitting MS and you’ve one busy blogger. “IAA” is why Ciara says she joined MS & Me - Information, Awareness and Advocacy.  

TeresaTeresa McShane

47 year old, married mother of two boys living in West Cork, Teresa enjoys cooking, reading, swimming and spending time with friends, in addition to writing. By joining the MS & Me Blog team, she hopes to contribute something positive to the MS community in Ireland and beyond.


GraceGrace Kavanagh

Living in Dublin, Grace – Married and 39 years old – has a passion for learning new things to keep her mind keen.  She hopes to not only share her experiences by blogging, but to be an active member of the MS & Me community to learn new tips from readers as well.



One of our bloggers has requested to remain anonymous (AnonyMS… see what we did there?) in her writing.  Not for the mystery of it, but she’s finds that misconceptions and prejudices remain strong in all walks of Irish society. The 29-year old Dublin healthcare professional and travel enthusiast was diagnosed in 2014.  

Niall McGahon 

Also diagnosed in 2014 is Niall, an implementation engineer for MRPI. He’s been married to his wife Claire since 2010 and became a new father last year. The Captain of his local golf club, his MS & Me contributions mark his first venture into writing about his life with multiple sclerosis. 


Next week we’ll round out our team and then get on with why you come to this page.  We’ll start the year off with a piece from our contributing editor, Declan, about help around the house.

Welcome fellow MSers is lovely to have your input and prospective . I have dealt with MS for some 30 yrs . I like to say “ I have MS but MS does not have me” I’ve lead an interesting fulfilling life and I’m not ready to throw in the towel yet ....keep a positive attitude and don’t feel bad if you have to surrender on your bad days ....as I’ve been advised it’s not a sin.
