'Tapestries for Life' in Clifden Library

The launch of 'Tapestries for Life' by Councillor Eileen Mannion; a wall hanging created by the residents of St Joseph’s Court Clifden as part of the Bealtaine Festival in Clifden Library
The development of of St Joseph’s Court, Clifden, has led to very positive outcomes for the residents and has helped to reduce the Galway County Council housing waiting lists in the elderly and special needs categories over the past ten years.
St. Joseph’s Court is a popular housing option for many elderly people wishing to move closer to the facilities of Clifden town. This enables greater participation in the local community, which may not be an option in more isolated rural areas.
There has been excellent communication and co-operation between the management and staff of Galway County Council and ClĂșid Housing from the outset. We look forward to continued collaboration with ClĂșid Housing at this and other locations throughout the county in the future.
