Tick Talk Ireland is focused on encouraging awareness, prevention & treatment of Lyme Disease (Borreliosis) in Ireland.
* Studies by the University College Hospital Galway cited Western Ireland as being endemic for Lyme Disease.
* Previous studies by Prof Gray UCD showed that Counties Wicklow, Kerry & Galway are also high risk areas.
*Dr Eoin Healy from UCC has confirmed that Cork is a hot spot area too.
So are ticks in your area? Are you worried about Lyme Disease? Complete this survey to tell us where & when the ticks were found.
**Please note the following important message:
We encourage members of the public to report any ticks spotted but to be careful when being in the presence of ticks. Lyme & other tick-borne diseases can be very serious & may cause long term health problems in some cases. If you are bitten please keep the tick in a ziploc plastic bag & write the date of the bite. Look for any symptoms over the following days & weeks such as an expanding bulls-eye rash or flu-type symptoms.
*Go to your GP with any concerns following a tick bite AS SOON as symptoms occur.*
