Our team in Northern Ireland

We have a specialist team in Northern Ireland working for everyone across the nation affected by a lung condition.

Northern Ireland Ranaldi

Northern Ireland’s industrial history and continued high levels of smoking mean that we have some of the highest rates of lung disease anywhere in the world.

We've achieved so much in recent years and our aim must be to give future generations the chance to live with clean air, healthy lungs and world-class medical services. We owe it to ourselves and we owe it to them. 

What we do

  • We support people who have lung disease, their families and carers.
  • We raise awareness of lung disease at a local and national level.
  • We campaign to make lung disease a priority for the Northern Ireland Executive.
  • We work with other organisations, such as voluntary groups, the NHS, and the Northern Ireland Assembly to improve services across Northern Ireland.

Who we are


Irene heads up our Northern Ireland team, and has a wealth of experience from the health and not-for-profit sectors.

"Whether it’s campaigning to improve services, working with our Breathe Easy groups or speaking to policymakers, it all comes back to helping people with lung disease. That’s the most important part of my approach.”
