We still need your help

The construction and equipping of the new Blanchardstown hospice cost €24.5 million, of which €1.5 million was provided by the HSE towards the fit-out costs.   Today this capital debt now stands at €5.9 million (as of June 2017) due to the generosity of the North Dublin community.  There is still much work to be done and the Blanchardstown Centre Oratory Group working closely with the hospice continues with its fundraising efforts to reduce this debt.

Blanchardstown Official Opening

On the 23rd May 2015 Minister for Health, Leo Varadkar officially opened St. Francis Hospice Blanchardstown, at a blessing ceremony presided over by Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin, D.D.  Located at Abbotstown, close to Connolly Hospital, the new €24.5 million 24-bed facility provides a full range of specialist palliative care services in the West Dublin community. Minister Varadkar said: “St Francis Hospice is a superb facility providing specialist palliative care services, and will reach more people in need of care. It will make a real difference to patients and their families. It’s here today thanks to support from the local community and very many others.
