Clare People Being Urged To Cycle For World Down Syndrome Day

The Clare branch of Down Syndrome Ireland insists that basic therapies can make life-changing differences in the lives of people with the condition.

Today is World Down Syndrome Day, which is marked on the 21st day of the third month each year, to represent the extra copy of the triplication of the 21st chromosome that people with Down Syndrome are born with.

People in Clare are being encouraged to take part in the “Odd Sock” cycle on April 24th, which aims to raise much needed funds for vital therapies and activities for people with Down Syndrome in this county.


Laura Cahir from the Clare Branch Committee of DSI says these are essential therapies.
