From Small Beginnings

The following radio programme describes the founding of Western Care in January 1966. You will hear how all the towns and town lands throughout County Mayo immediately got behind this unique undertaking, and typical of this great endeavour was the town of Claremorris, which is just one example among many, of the wonderful support and good will generated at that time. This support and goodwill has increased over the years, ensuring that Western Care is now ingrained in every community throughout the County. 

This program is funded by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland with the Television Licence Fee. This Documentary is produced by Teresa Ward and Allan Tiernan.  Music kindly contributed by Grainne Hamley.
