My MS Story

Our most famous son is none other than Monsignor James Horan, dreamer and instigator of the creation of Ireland West Airport (Knock). He as parish priest of Knock was instrumental in developing Knock as a Marian Shrine and the Basilica there. ​My MS journey started in 2001 when I was diagnosed as having Primary Progressive. My MS journey started in 2001 when I was diagnosed as having Primary Progressive. Back then there was no specific treatment for that type of MS so I just had to carry on as if everything was normal . My mantra to overcome MS has always been “Failure is not an option". Any challenges MS threw at me were always overcome.

Part II- Why are you still blocking our way to equality?

Part I- My disability is not a tragedy, and I am not a burden

My disability is not a tragedy and I am not a burden. I am not to be pitied and most of all I am not an inspiration just because I live with MS.

My MS and disability is just one part of who I am. It is part of my identity, just like gender, sexuality, race or religion may be part of yours. Yet society rarely sees it that way. And for a very long time I did not see it that way either.

MS will push you to your limits and expose your vulnerabilities. Most of us have had those days when just getting out of bed is a chore, let alone mustering up the energy to exercise. After my anxiety became infinitely worse during the pandemic and the return to pre-Covid normality had become too people-y, my boyfriend convinced me to start running.
