Stop the closure of St. Mary's Home for the Blind in Merrion, Dublin 4
Why is this important?
35 blind and visually-impaired ladies have lived here some for over six decades. The proposal is to close the centre and transfer these people to other locations. They have been friends for years; they know the layout of their environment; now they are to be separated and sent to different places. It is difficult enough when you are blind to get to know a new place but when you are an elderly prson it is much more difficult.
