Hiqa Reports

"The St Brendan's Village Development project started in 1984 and set to address the need for all of our citizens, no matter how old or disabled, to have the opportunity to stay in their own area, if that was their wish.

For too long we all witnessed the sad silent migration of too many of our older people to faraway institutions.

St Brendan's High Support Unit |

1998 was the realisation of a dream when the final part of the Mulranny St. Brendan's Village Development became a reality - the St Brendan's High Support Unit catering for up to 30 people.

When people can no longer live in the community or in low support sheltered housing, even with the support of the electronic alarms and our caretaker nuns, they still have the opportunity to stay locally no matter how frail or disabled, thanks to our high support St. Brendan's Unit.

This Unit, for people with high support needs, has 15 double rooms, a day room, an oratory, a dining area and showers, baths and lavatories designed for use by disabled people.

Dr Jerry Cowley

Driving force behind the creation of St Brendan's Village has been local General Practitioner, Dr Jerry Cowley, who argues there is a great need to retain people in rural districts.
