Fine Gael Kildare South TD and Teach na nDaoine committee member Martin Heydon has today (Friday) welcomed the grant of Planning Permission for an extension to the Old Dispensary in Kilcullen which is currently being renovated as the Teach na nDaoine drop in centre.
“I along with other members of the project committee welcome the grant of permission. The current renovation work is being supported by individual donations of money and expertise and through the strong generosity of many local people in supporting fundraising events.
“The proposed extension will be to the rear of the current building, and will make possible a much more extensive range of services, particularly to older people in the community, when it is completed. With the grant of permission, the committee are now examining the possibility of applying for significant external grant funds which would accelerate the building of the extension.
