Cheshire Services in Ireland
The first Cheshire service in Ireland opened in Shillelagh, Co. Wicklow in 1961. This was followed in 1963 by the incorporation of the Cheshire Foundation in Ireland. The Foundation is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity. Operating under the name of Cheshire Ireland, we currently operate 15 accommodation centres around Ireland, including residential respite services, together with an evolving range of community services. In general, Cheshire provides services to adults with physical disabilities. However, we also provide services to some people who have learning disabilities, acquired brain injuries or progressive neurological conditions.
