St. Brigid’s Hospice, The Curragh was officially reopened on 1st October 2018 by the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, after an extension and total refurbishment had been completed. The final cost of this project was in the region of 6 million Euro. This costly project was a joint venture of the Friends of St. Brigid’s Hospice and Home Care Service and the HSE. The HSE set out the criteria, but all funding was raised by the Friends from our many supporters in Kildare and West Wicklow. The Friends, the Minister and the HSE are confidant that the Hospice is now a state of the art facility for patients and their families.
