POLIO: Polio Survivors Ireland, is the new name for the Post Polio Support Group. People who had polio are invited to sign up to the new National Polio Register. It is estimated that as many as 7,000 people who had polio live in Ireland, many are not in touch with the charity Polio Survivors Ireland, making it difficult to lobby for improved services and support for those living with the impact of polio. The Register is being launched in Co. Kilkenny and we are asking parishioners to help promote and support the Polio Register and also relay this information to polio survivors and their families. Please contact us if you need more information or materials: Call Emma on (01) 8898920 or info@ppsg.ie or visit www.polio.ie
