HSE warned Loughrea campaigners will not give up fight to restore day centre
Galway Bay fm newsroom – The HSE is being warned that campaigners in Loughrea are not giving up their fight to restore the Seven Springs Day Centre.
The purpose-built centre has been closed to provide more space at St. Brendan’s Community Nursing Unit.
The centre is to be relocated to another building on the site – which campaigners say comes nowhere near the same quality as the original centre.
In the meantime, day services are being provided at the Loughrea Hotel, a move deeply unpopular with users and their families.
A local petition has gathered almost 2,500 signatures and there’s been a number of protests over the past year.
Chair of the Concerned Citizens Group is Mattie Quinn.
