The Coeliac Society of Ireland’s ‘Promise’ Gluten Free Living Show returns on September 28, moving to the Green Isle Hotel in Clondalkin and catering for a significantly increased number of visitors and exhibitors.

The ‘Promise’ Gluten Free Living Show is a one-stop shop for everyone suffering from coeliac disease or living a gluten-free lifestyle, with dozens of exhibitors showcasing hundreds of products. The show features cooking demos, a kids’ academy, and lots of talks and practical advice for anyone living gluten-free.

Gill Brennan, Chief Executive of the Coeliac Society of Ireland told The Echo: “There are over 7,500 undiagnosed children with coeliac disease in Ireland, as well as thousands of adults who are unknowingly and unnecessarily suffering from this lifelong and incurable autoimmune disease. This is a disease that can cause infertility, depression and can have many other deleterious effects on people’s lives.”

Ms Brennan told The Echo that they need to raise “awareness of a disease that is becoming more prevalent in Irish society.”

 She added: “There is a worrying shortfall in Ireland in terms of early diagnosis and subsequent access to supports for people suffering with Coeliac Disease. The ‘Promise’ Gluten Free Living Show will provide visitors with the opportunity to talk to leading medical professionals, the chance to visit the Dietetic Speed Clinic and allow them to meet the many other experts who are at hand to offer guidance. So, whether you are a current sufferer or suspect that you might be gluten-intolerant the show will be of benefit to you.”

 The Gluten Free Living Show runs from 11am to 4.00pm on September 28.
