Cast-iron guarantee needed on Rosalie Home – Kerrane



Roscommon Sinn Féin has called for a cast-iron guarantee from the HSE and the Government on the future of the Rosalie Home in Castlerea.

  Sinn Féin General election candidate Claire Kerrane said: “The Rosalie residents and their families are facing the threatened closure of their home for the second time in the space of under three years.

  “We cannot have a situation where this keeps happening, the residents and their families need peace of mind and certainty that the commitments made in 2015 will be honoured – that all remaining residents can see out their days in the Rosalie Home, the Home will be developed as part of plans for dementia care in the region and families will be kept informed at all times.

  “Sinn Féin has raised concerns on the future of the Rosalie Home with the Taoiseach directly on the floor of the Dáil. Sinn Féin TDs Gerry Adams, Louise O’Reilly and Pat Buckley have all made representations to both Minister Jim Daly and Minister Simon Harris on the future of the Home.

  Cllr. Michael Mulligan added: “Sinn Féin stands with the residents of the Rosalie Home and their families. Commitments made in 2015 must be honoured; it is as simple as that”.
