The very first "Helping People with Parkinson's" course in Ireland is starting 20th February in the Edmund Rice Heritage centre at 11am; this first course is completely FREE.

This 5 week course has been specifically designed to help improve quality of life for people with Parkinson's and is the combination of Parkinson’s tailored exercise and special guest speakers each week which include doctors, physiotherapist, nutritionist, psychotherapist and fitness instructor; all sharing their expert knowledge and giving practical take home tips on how to improve your quality of life.

The course is created by Irene Treacy who is a PD Warrior, Smovey Coach and is Parkinson's Regeneration Trained, Irene has realised after working with people with Parkinson's for the past two years, it's a combination of positive mental attitude, exercise and nutrition along with their medication can drastically improve the quality of life for people with Parkinson's.

"I've personally seen and worked with hundreds of people with Parkinson's that their quality of life has actually improved. This is not down to just one thing but I believe a combination of elements from exercise, diet, hope and what's so important is education. Many people don't realise the significance and importance of exercise and diet and when they are explained and understand the effect it has on their body and brain, they are more likely to stick to a plan and that's exactly what I've created.

"A plan of action which is a holistic approach as it incorporates the body, mind and beliefs. We have so much power inside us to create an improvement and this course is a step by step guide to improve your personal belief, increase your physical and mental strength and improve your quality of life."

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years.

It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience.  Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face.

We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
