 Speaking to Joy Orpen in the Irish Independent 15th October 2017, the NAI Executive Director highlighted the critical shortages in neurology services in Ireland:

Mags Rogers, executive director of the Neurological Alliance of Ireland, says: "Neurology services in Ireland are in crisis. We have the lowest number of consultant neurologists in the whole of Europe, and so the waiting lists for a first-time appointment are growing. With our ageing population, more of us are developing conditions such as stroke, Parkinson's disease and dementia, and the increasing demand on neurology services is not being matched with investment. The pressure on individual neurologists is enormous."
