In line with current recommendations, we regret to announce that we have made the decision to cancel all face to face appointments & drop in services until restrictions are eased.

This has not been an easy decision & we appreciate the distress & anxiety that this decision will cause to our service users and women in the county.

We feel that it is the right course of action to protect the health & wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, service users & all our families.

However, you may still contact the Centre on 074 9124985, email us on womenscentrelkenny@eircom.net or send us a private message through Facebook.

Further information on our service provision is availble here

 

If you are experiencing symptoms, you should self-isolate, regardless of travel or contact history, and phone your GP.
