POLL: Should new Waterford care facility include St Patrick's name?

Furious reaction to absence of St Patrick’s name on new Waterford care facility

Should new Waterford care facility include St Patrick's name?

YES (it should include St Patrick's)


NO (it should not include St Patrick's)


An Independent Waterford City South local election candidate has slammed the absence of a saint’s name on a new Waterford care facility.

The new €25 million 100 bed residential care centre adjacent to the current St Patrick’s Hospital on John’s Hill is set to be completed in June.

According to HSE guidelines, all new residential care facilities must include ‘residential care centre’, with new facility called Waterford Residential Care Centre.

However, local election candidate Donal Barry has slammed the decision not to include the saint’s name.
