South Kerry Branch of M.S. was formed in 1979 when Kerry was divided up into three areas i.e. Tralee, North Kerry (Listowel) and South Kerry.


Our Branch caters for the needs of approx. 65 members with M.S. in the South Kerry area - Killarney, Kenmare, Lauragh, Milltown, Castlemaine, Killorglin, Rathmore, Gneeveguilla, Sneem, Waterville Caherciveen.


We lobby for their needs and rights and we assist financially when needed. To this end we raise funds for:
  • The day to day needs of the members
  • To provide physiotherapy, reflexology etc. also transport to and from these treatments
  • The supply of necessary aids and appliances and we subsidize home helps counseling and any financial needs not met by the social services
  • Financial and advisory help with necessary modifications and renovations of living accommodation and also adaption of vehicles to meet the needs of our members as disabled drivers/passengers
  • Annual subscriptions towards research into the cause of M.S. so that a cure can be found
  • Every 2nd year we travel to Lourdes with members on a "healing holiday". This is very expensive as cost of travel has escalated in the past few years
  • We also arrange and finance where necessary respite care
  • Funding is also being sought for a new building in Killarney to cater for rehabilitation, therapy and general use of all our members
