MS Readathon 2023

Print museum launch


Throughout November, the rather wonderful MS Readathon takes place in schools and homes across Ireland.

The MS Readathon, Ireland’s oldest fundraiser is back for the 36th year in a row and will take place over the month of November.  MS Ireland is asking thousands of readers young and old to take part in raising awareness and vital funds to support the 10,000 people living with Multiple Sclerosis in Ireland. 

Visit to sign up and support the MS Community.


MS Ireland launched the MS Readathon at The Irish Print Museum with Ava Battles, CEO MS Ireland, RTE’s Rick O’Shea, children’s authors Alan Nolan and Nicola Pierce, MS Readathon Ambassador Shirley Keane O’Brien and 2nd and 3rd class children from John Scottus primary school.

MS Readathon Ambassador Shirley Keane O’Brien “I found MS Ireland which was a crucial help when I was diagnosed. They were so positive and helpful. I go to their social events now. They provide physiotherapy and psychological support, as well as really good information. 

“I’m only delighted to be the ambassador and help raise awareness of the MS Readathon. I remember it from the kids doing it in primary school. Now I’ll be doing it and loving every minute of it”.
