St Joseph’s Day Care Centre in Ballaghaderreen will close at the end of July.

That was confirmed to local public representatives at a meeting with HSE officials in Galway today.

There had been uncertainly over the future of the centre earlier this year and an assessment was carried out.

Public representatives were told that the assessment indicated the unit was not suitable for use by the patients serviced by it.

The 18 patients who use it will now be bussed to Boyle to the Day Care Centre there.

Ballaghaderreen Sinn Fein Councillor Michael Mulligan told Midwest News it is an unacceptable development.
