A pre­sen­ta­tion on de­men­tia to Sligo County Coun­cil was widely com­mended by all coun­cil­lors last Mon­day.

Chair of De­men­tia Europe and Tub­ber­curry na­tive He­len Rochford-Bren­nan, along with her Carmel Geoghe­gan, de­liv­ered the pre­sen­ta­tion in an ef­fort to in­crease aware­ness of De­men­tia, which is the fasted spread­ing dis­ease in the world with no cure.

All coun­cil­lors com­mended both women on the de­tailed pre­sen­ta­tion, with Cllr Jerry Lundy de­scrib­ing it as the best pre­sen­ta­tion he had seen since be­com­ing a mem­ber of the coun­cil.

Af­ter­wards all of the county coun­cil­lors wel­comed the de­tailed and in­sight­ful pre­sen­ta­tion and a mo­tion to write to the Min­is­ter for Health Si­mon Har­ris TD to seek ex­tra fund­ing for De­men­tia was passed.
