Health Minister Makes Contact With HSE To Reslove Concerns Of Mother With Autistic Child

Jake O' Kane is being forced to move from residential care in Greystones to County Laois, because he has reached the age of 18.

Linda O’Kane who lives in Crumlin, has been told there is no alternative but to move her son Jake to Portarlington, leaving her with a 160 kilometre round trip to visit him.

Health Minister and Wicklow TD Simon Harris says it doesn’t make sense to him and there has to be an alternative facility closer to Linda.
