Kerry addiction treatment centre relocates to comply with social distancing

The Grove, an alcoholism and addiction rehab treatment centre, has relocated to Ardfert to comply with social distancing.

The Grove was based in Castleisland, but has moved to a larger venue in the former Ardfert Retreat Centre building, where it has a 12-month lease.

The centre closed on March 20th to ensure staff and clients would be safe; it reopened two weeks ago in the new location.

CEO of The Grove, Dolores Tiernan says the 2 metres social distance can now be maintained at all times.

Dolores Tiernan says the move also allows them to take on more clients:
