New Athlone Pieta House office to be open by early October

It’s hoped a new Pieta house centre in Athlone will be fully operational by the beginning of October.

Work is continuing on refurbishing and upgrading the old Console office in the town based at Sean Costello street to provide Pieta house services from the midlands and Shannonside region.

The group advertised this week for key frontline staff and a special invite only meeting is being held next Monday night for people interested in being part of a support group for the centre.


Volunteer Ciaran Mulooly says the progress of the work so far in Athlone has been very exciting :
