Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD ) is a progressive disease that makes it difficult to breathe. It is a catch-all term for two common and very serious conditions, chronic bronchitis and emphysema, which usually gets progressively worse over time. Open to anyone who has COPD. Go along for a cup of tea and a chat. For more information contact Aoife Folliard HSE (acting respiratory nurse specialist ) 094 9042000 ext 2391.
