Suir Haven Sensory Garden Thurles Now Complete

Suir Haven

Pictured L-R, John O’Shaughnessy (Clancy Construction, Drangan), J.J. O’Sullivan (O’Sullivan Construction Ltd, Littleton) with employees Ciaran King and Dave Fleming, pictured here adding the final touches to the Suir Haven Sensory Garden in Thurles.

With the arrival of new railings and glass panels, the Suir Haven Sensory Garden is now complete. A huge ‘Thank You’ to the many local construction industry members involved; each who donated materials, time and labour, totally free of charge.

For those less familiar with Suir Haven, same is a community based support centre where everyone is welcome; whether one is currently living with cancer or affected by it.  These persons can include clients, family, carers, children and friends.

All of the cancer support services available are provided free of charge. In fact this wonderful facility is truly a ‘drop-in centre’, meaning that anybody who wishes to avail of the services provided can call in without referral from a General Practitioner (GP).

The centre which is located in a non-clinical setting, offers not just emotional support, but also counselling, practical help and information; all provided in a safe, positive and totally confidential environment.

Suir Haven Sensory Garden is expected to officially open in early Spring 2016 and we hope to bring you further details of all those involved in this worthwhile project later.

However in the meantime “What a great sense of community spirit by those involved – well done to all and again thank you.”
