Mary Sheahan Lonergan

Board Member

Mary has been a member of MS Ireland since 1984 and in those years has been elected to various roles within the Fermoy branch, presently she is the Chairperson.

She is a “hands on” individual & thrives when organising, publicising and marketing the Fermoy Branch fundraising events. She is always looking for new ways to engage with the public, encouraging volunteerism & at the same time raising the profile of the society.

Mary is passionate about people’s ‘well-being’ & the society’s aim for supporting all those living with MS to live active & positive lives. Her connection & (involvement) within the local community affords her the ideal opportunity to promote, educate, encourage people to participate and engage with the society.“ The society has to have the necessary resources to function, we must be aware of opportunities, and we must also create opportunities, because standing still is not an option if we are to deliver the services & supports our members need and deserve”

Mary is a Kerry native, lives in Fermoy, Co. Cork.
