To mark the occasion, trustee Eleanor Burke hosted an aniridia meetup at Wynn’s Hotel in Dublin on Saturday 29 February 2020, from 3pm-6pm.

The event was free and included a non-alcoholic welcome drink.

Anyone affected by aniridia was welcome to attend, including patients, parents, children and professionals. As proven by the most recent gatherings in Scotland & London, our meetups are a wonderful opportunity for people to share experiences, get supportive advice and make new friends, so please do join us!

If you would like to organise a meetup in your area, then you are more than welcome to do so, and indeed we encourage it. Email meetup@aniridia.org.uk to let us know when and where it will take place, and we’ll help you to promote it.
