Senator McCarthy said, ‘The closure of the Teagasc office in Dunmanway was a big loss to the town. I am delighted that this building will continue to be used for the benefit of the local people. I understand that the terms of the purchase were very favourable.
‘Currently, the Family Resource Centre is operating out of rented accommodation in the town. It provides a very important and valuable service to the community in Dunmanway and it deserves its own building. It makes sense for the HSE to purchase a home for the Family Resource Centre rather than to continue renting.
‘This is something I have been working on with the staff of the Family Resource Centre and I am please that it has come to a successful conclusion.’
