Opening Of Wicklow Hospice Delayed Until Early Next Year

Plans to open the long awaited Wicklow Hospice near Brittas Bay this December have been deferred.

It was expected that the facility on the site at Magheramore, which was donated by the Columban sisters would open before the end of this year.

More than €3.5 million has been raised by the people of Wicklow for the project, with further funding being provided by the department of health to run the Hospice.

At the weekend, the health minister Simon Harris announced that the Hospice will now open in January.
