FERMOY WELFARE HOME PREPARES TO CLOSE ITS DOORS
Residents of St Francis Home in Fermoy have this week begun to move to their new homes, with five of the remaining nine clients finally leaving and the remaining four due to depart next week.
The move by the patients marks the beginning of the end for St Francis Home, and comes despite months of Trojan work by the local community to keep the unit open.
St Francis was earmarked for closure on February 9 and the decision to move patients this week follows three months of consultations with them and their families about their preferred new location.
