The Roscommon palliative care centre has been officially launched.

Minister of Health Stephan Donnelly cut the ribbon on the 6.3 million euro centre adjacent to Roscommon hospital today.

The CEO of the Hospice Martina Jennings says it's a day of celebration for all those in the community who have worked so hard to raise funds for the hospice down through the years.

Irene Beirne, set up the Knockcroghery Hospice Support Group in the years after her daughter Sinead passed away.

She is one of hundreds of people who helped raised thousands of euro for the Roscommon Mayo Hospice to make up the 6.3 million needed.

She sadly died before she would see the centre built, but is remembered in the garden pod at the hospice.
