Our principal objective is to benefit the community of Co. Kildare and West Wicklow by assisting, promoting and supporting the aspirations and needs of St. Brigid’s Hospice. This is achieved through financial assistance towards Hospice, Specialist Palliative care and Home Care for patients with incurable life threatening illnesses and their families.
Palliative care is the continuing active total care of patients and their families, at a time when the medical expectation is no longer cure.

Phone number: 045 532060
We have ten fundraising support groups throughout the region of Kildare and West Wicklow. A board meeting is held each month. Directors and representatives from each area attend. Directors and officers are elected. Our extensively audited accounts are approved, at the annual general meeting (AGM). The public are welcome to attend the AGM.
Currently a major rebuilding project is under way, and this will include the extension and total refurbishment of the premises of St. Brigid’s Hospice in its beautiful rural setting on The Curragh. This is an enormous and costly project which is a joint venture with the HSE. The HSE sets out the criteria required for such a facility but all of the funding must be raised by The Friends. The building is well under way, and we are confident that on completion it will be a beautiful environment for patients and their families.
