The Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council says he's very disappointed to learn that the respite service is no longer available at the MacBride Community Nursing Unit in Westport.

The day care service at the nursing home has not been provided over the past number of weeks due to staffing shortages, and this is the same reason being given for the suspension of the respite service, according to Fianna Fail Councillor Brendan Mulroy.

He says families who depend on the respite service for a break for a few weeks each year cannot now avail of the service, and he claims that nursing staff are reluctant to take up jobs at the MacBride Home, as they're only being offered 3-month contracts.
