About 2 weeks ago, St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh GAA Club set up a delivery service to deliver prescriptions from Meaghers Pharmacy, Kinvara Park for people over 70, who are ocooning or who have underlying medical problems. This has been a great success.
Last week, they expanded the system to include fuel, groceries and other necessities for people not able to get them themselves. People can call 01 90 20 20 1 which will ring on one of their volunteer mobiles and they will coordinate with their club members who can carry out the request. They have also contacted our local SuperValu store at Rathborne and arranged to commence deliveries from the store today, Monday 30th March.
The service is called Pobal Phluincéid and they plan to drop leaflets to the homes in the neighbourhood this week with the contact number as many who may need the service in the area do not use social media. All the volunteers live in the immediate area and they are coordinating daily response teams.
If you are aware of anyone who might require this service please pass on the phone number.
