PODCAST: Ballagh service-users demand closure U-turn

The mental-health daycare centre in Ballaghaderreen is due to close at the end this month, but many of the service-users are strongly opposed to the closure.

Some of them have been told they can attend a similar facility in Castlerea, but they claim that would inconvenience them greatly and they may not go.

For Tuesday’s Let’s Talk, Eoghan Murphy spoke to three service-users – Martina Roddy, Martin Brennan and David Mahon – who movingly spoke about their problems and called for the HSE reverse the decision to close the unit.
