Nenagh town councillor Conor Delaney (FG) has welcomed the news that funding of €50,000 has been allocated to Newport Day Care Centre from National Lottery sources administered by the Department of Health.
“This is fantastic news for Newport Day Care Centre and I welcome Minister Reilly’s announcement. The monies will be used to fund the purchase of a new minibus which is so important for people who avail of this service from Newport and the surrounding communities.
“I recently spoke with the centre manager and she was delighted with the funding as the old bus was costing too much to service and maintain,” he said.
Cllr. Delaney said that the existing bus was purchased in 2009 from similar funding and he wished the staff and management at Newport Day Care Centre the best of luck with their new bus.
