The Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage and Local Fingal TD, Darragh O’Brien officially opened two Prosper Fingal facilities in North County Dublin, Ballustree Lodge in Rush and The Obelisk Day Service in Skerries.
Prosper Fingal provides services and supports to adults with an intellectual disability in North County Dublin. Today almost 500 individuals and their carers are supported by Prosper Group across County Fingal and County Meath.
Commenting Minister O’Brien said, “From speaking with staff, with service users and their families at both Ballustree Lodge and The Obelisk it was very clear to see that Prosper Fingal are very much excelling in their mission to ‘support each individual to live the life they choose, in the same way and same places as everybody else’.
“The day spent with them in both Rush and Skerries was one of the most joyful days and it was a real honour for me to be invited to officially open the services which were described by some family members as ‘home from home’.
“The entire team at Prosper Fingal are to be highly commended on what they have done, it’s hard work and efforts which have brought both of these projects to fruition, and I will continue to do everything I can to support them,” he concluded.
