April is MS Ireland month on DoneDeal. For each ad placed we give 30 cent to The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland to help them to improve the lives of those affected. Ireland has one of the highest prevalence rates of MS in the world.
We met up with Cathryn O’Leary, the Senior Fundraising Executive who lives in Ferns, Co. Wexford and is based in MS Ireland’s head office in Dublin.
