A renewed campaign has been launched. Uses for St.Brigids? Endless.

A renewed campaign has been launched to encourage Galway Hospice to relocate to the old St Brigid’s Hospital in Ballinasloe.

A former government minister has asked the HSE to potentially open up the 120 acres for hospice services. 

They are basing their case on the fact it is geographically well-placed to serve the needs of hospice patients both in Galway, Roscommon and throughout the Midlands.

This psychiatric hospital in Ballinasloe was closed around five years ago and still remains totally vacant. It remains in the ownership of the HSE West.

Former Minister and Roscommon-Galway TD Denis Naughten along with the Chairman of Ballinasloe Area Community Development Seamus Duffy are both advocating that the East Galway town is the ideal location for the Hospice.

Galway Hospice did not want to comment on the calls that their service be moved to the HSE-owned building in Ballinasloe.
