Cllr Mark Murnin, Chairman, Newry, Mourne and Down Council met with members of Newry Parkinson's UK group including Eimer McQuillan and Lorraine and Colm Curran at Newry Town Hall.

 It was part of a Parkinson's awareness event and the switch was set to illuminate Newry Town Hall blue last night to mark World Parkinson's Day.

Around 145,000 people are living with Parkinsons in the UK. Most are over 50 but it can affect younger people.

Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition.

People with Parkinson's don't have enough of a chemical called dopamine because specific nerve cells inside their brain have died. It is not known why these cells die.

Without dopamine people can find that their movements become slower so it takes longer to do things. This can make everyday activities, such as eating, getting dressed, or using a phone or computer, difficult or frustrating.

The 3 main symptoms of Parkinson's are tremor, muscle stiffness and slowness of movement. But not everyone will experience all of these.

The Newry branch of Parkinson's UK bring people with Parkinson's, their carers and families together so that no one has to face Parkinson's alone.
