Demonstrations are taking place in Cork, Limerick and Dublin this weekend to highlight the lack of supports for people suffering from an eating disorder.

The "Mind Everybody" group says services in the country are incredibly inadequate and are calling on the Government to remove barriers to access for proper treatment.

The group says people suffering from eating disorders who look for help come up against a lack of ED services, long waiting times and no specialised care for adults.

Speaking to RedFM News 19 year-old Luna Fleming, from Cork city, who is in recovery from an eating disorder says they have no choice but to bring their campaign to the streets:

"In most counties there's no specific services at all publicly, I know in Cork there is a child an adolescent service but not an adult service at the moment and country wide theres' only three in patient beds for eating disorders and those are in Dublin."
