First Ever Irish Gluten Free Roadshow – Coeliac Society of Ireland – 8th October 2022
The Coeliac Society of Ireland will hold its first ever irish Gluten Free Roadshow on October 8 at the Tullamore Hotel in County Offaly.
It will be the first public event the Society has organized in three years.
The event will feature expert talks from leading medical practitioners, dieticians, food producers, as well as live cooking demonstrations.
Anyone living with coeliac disease or severe gluten intolerances will be able to speak with the experts at the roadshow who will demonstrate how to live a full and healthy gluten-free life.
We are excited to be back with a live and in person event for the first time in three years. The Gluten Free Roadshow offers a fantastic opportunity for those individuals, whether diagnosed or just suspect they may be coeliac or gluten intolerant, to talk to medical professionals, have the chance to hear and interact with a dietetic clinician, and to meet the many other experts who will be on hand to offer guidance.
An added bonus will be our live cooking demonstrations from our in-house food safety and Technical food advisor as well as leading celebrity chef Adrian Martin who will share their culinary secrets in how to safely prepare tasty and nutritious meals that which will cater for their medically necessary dietary requirements.
Thankfully, the days of not been able to interact and share experiences of being coeliac are over, and the Coeliac Society is once again striving to make Ireland the best country in the world to live gluten free. This show and others we will schedule over the next twelve months will help us to achieve this as we continue to support, empower, educate, and inspire those living a gluten free life’

What is Coeliac Disease
Coeliac disease is an autoimmune disease characterised by an abnormal reaction to gluten consumption. The intestine becomes inflamed and damaged which then results in poor absorption of essential nutrients. Gluten is a protein and can be found in a number of everyday foods including bread, pasta, gravy, soy sauce and beer.
The symptoms of coeliac disease and gluten intolerance can be debilitating and include stomach pains, constipation, weight loss, and migraines. Coeliac disease may result in longer-term complications such as anaemia, osteoporosis, and infertility. The only treatment is a strict gluten free diet for life.
