The Minister of State, with responsibility for Mental Health and Older People, Mary Butler, has today provided a very promising update in relation to Clonmel Crisis House.
Commenting on this today, Deputy Cahill said: “I am delighted to receive notification from Minister Butler that the approval to accept tender has been signed for the Crisis House in Clonmel and that the process is now gaining momentum with the contract expected to be awarded in the third quarter.”
He continued to say: “The total project cost is estimated to be €3.73 million, which is undoubtedly a significant investment into Mental Health services in County Tipperary. This is a very welcome development for Tipperary as a whole, and specifically this facility, which provides much needed services to the people of Tipperary. I would like to thank Minister Butler, my Fianna Fáil colleague, for all her work with me on this issue to date.”
