Peter McVerry Trust has been kindly invited to attend the National Ceremony of Remembrance and Reflection on Sunday 20th March to commemorate the more than 9,000 people who died on the island of Ireland with Covid-19.
This event, hosted by An Taoiseach, Micheál Martin, will also recognise, and say thank you, to the volunteers, the Irish people, and to all the workers who gave their all in the fight against Covid-19.
Peter McVerry Trust has been invited to recognise our work during the pandemic to protect vulnerable groups from Covid-19. Over the course of the pandemic, we supported over 7,500 people to self-isolate across our 8 nurse-led isolation services.
These services catered to people living in homelessness, people leaving HSE services with no home to go to, children in TUSLA services and asylum seekers entering the country through International Protection Accommodation Services.
We’re grateful and honoured to be invited to this national event, and for the opportunity to remember those who lost their lives during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our organisation will be represented by Noelle Woods, Director of Nursing and Addiction Services.
