Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association

The Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA, CHY 8510) is the only organisation of its kind in the country. We are dedicated to working on behalf of people living with MND and their families and carers. Our key services include home visits by our 4 MND nurses, financial assistance towards home help and the supply of specialised equipment on loan. We also fund and promote research into the causes and treatments of MND.


  • To encourage and promote the best methods of care, education, research and treatment for people with Motor Neurone Disease throughout Ireland, contributing to worldwide efforts in research and development of treatment.
  • To establish and promote models of good practice in the delivery of specialised services to our patients, their families and carers, setting standards of excellence.
  • To communicate widely, knowledge of Motor Neurone Disease and related disorders in order to raise awareness in the wider community.

The very first meeting of the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association was held on the 1st May 1985. Over 60 people who were affected by MND at the time attended and each person had a strong belief that there was need for a support organisation. The primary goal of the association in 1985 was to break the isolation experienced by MND people, their carers and families. With this goal in mind and a strong determined group the Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association was formed and has grown in strength over the years continuing to provide care and support for people affected by this condition.

The majority of funds raised from our generous donors and supporters go towards providing services to people with Motor Neurone Disease.  These services include the provision of specialised equipment such as wheelchairs, beds as well as communication aids (many people with MND will lose their speech at some point). The IMNDA also provides financial assistance towards home care. Four MND nurses undertake home visits to our clients across the country. We do not receive any statutory funding for our nursing posts, they are funded entirely through fundraising and donations.

The IMNDA accounts are audited each year and can be viewed on our website
