Dundalk Counselling Centre ‘Oakdene’ is celebrating forty years of helping the local community

[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

Dundalk Counselling Centre ‘Oakdene’ is celebrating forty years of helping the local community, with the demand for its services as high now as ever.

Set up in 1982 in response to the devastating impact which high levels of unemployment and poverty were having on people’s mental health, including refugees who had escaped the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the Centre proved to be a beacon in how a community can help itself.

Many of those who have been involved in this valuable work were present on Friday when the Centre proudly launched the first of its 40 year celebration events with planting of an oak tree, followed by an open day at it Seatown Place premises which showcased all its facilities.

The Oak tree, which was kindly donated by Senator Erin Mc Greehan,  was planted in St Helena’s Park signifying the growth and roots Dundalk Counselling Centre.
