The 29th MS Readathon has been officially launched with Deirdre O’Kane and Moone boy actor David Rawle, joining national MS ambassador family Gerard Murphy, who is living with MS, and his 17-year-old daughter Lauren.

Lauren invented a smart device that helps people with MS grip and hold objects, as a transition year student which put her in the running for $4m worth of prizes and scholarships competing with students from all over the world.

Moone Boy actor David Rawle said: “MS Readathon is an excellent way for children to be involved in a good cause, while improving their own reading ability."

Young readers in County Leitrim are encouraged to take part in the month-long sponsored reading campaign to raise funds for vital services for people with Multiple Sclerosis in their region. The reading month takes place from Friday October 7th to Monday November 7th 2016. Please visit for more information.
