A county councillor has expressed his concern at the lack of certain facilities at Leawood house in Killarney.

Services at the adult mental health day care centre at Lantern Lodge are being transferred to Leawood House on Countess Road.

Independent Cllr Johnny Healy-Rae along with Deputy Danny Healy-Rae and Cllr John Joe Culloty met with the HSE yesterday to voice their concerns that service users won’t be able to shower and have a meal at Leawood house.

This arrangement is currently available at Lantern Lodge.

Cllr Healy-Rae says the lack of these facilities could have a negative impact on the vital services offered at Leawood house.
