Providing Social Housing: Errigal Truagh Special Needs has been liaising with Monaghan
County Council to explore the possibility of providing social housing in the Truagh
area for any family or individual seeking a house. In particular, we are interested
in establishing housing accommodation for all those with intellectual or physical
disabilities who have a housing requirement immediately, or into the future. This
need was clearly outlined to the Board of Directors by families at a planning meeting
three years ago. Our centre’s aim is to provide housing locally for adults with intellectual
disabilities who require high, moderate and low care and support. We wish to invite
you to attend a meeting In Errigal Truagh Special Needs Centre, Killeanly, Emyvale
on Tuesday the 20th of June at 8.30pm Representatives from Monaghan County Council
will attend this meeting to outline the possibilities for housing and to answer your
questions and concerns. The meeting is open to all individuals and groups in North
Monaghan. It is also important to note that those who may be seeking accommodation
and who have no disability are equally welcome as any proposed residential development
would include a mix of houses for those with disabilities and those who do not. Errigal
Truagh Special Needs regards this as a great opportunity to enhance the lives of
all in our community who need residential accommodation. We encourage you to support
this project by attending this initial meeting. Kind regards The Board of Directors
of Errigal Truagh Special Needs Parents & Friends Ltd
