Thurles Lions Trust Housing Association CLG are pleased to confirm that we have received approval from the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government to advance the development of The Stanwix Village to tender. This development, on completion, will see the following delivered on the site of the existing Stanwix Home by the end of 2021
- A complete refurbishment of the existing protected, terraced, one-storey, structures to provide nine one-bedroomed units.
- Construction of Five new one-bedroomed, terraced, one-storey units
- Construction of One new five-bedroomed bungalow that will accommodate four adults who require residential supported accommodation and one carer
- A complete refurbishment of the former two-storey Director’s House, a protected structure, that will provide a Community Centre for the use of the residents of the Stanwix Village as well as the residents of the area in general. This Centre will also become the home to The Blue Door, an initiative of Thurles Lions Club, that provides support and a listening ear to those who are in need of such supports.
Standing in all its glory at the top of Kickham Street for over one hundred and thirty years, The Stanwix (Widows) Home is close to the hearts of generations of Thurles people and those of surrounding parishes. As there will be a requirement for a certain local financial contribution to co-fund the delivery of this ambitious project, the opportunity will be there for people to contribute to the project and have theirs, or their family’s name, recorded as part of a “Stanwix Memorial Garden/Pathway”. Thurles Lions Club has agreed to spearhead this fundraising initiative and will shortly announce plans for the development of a “Stanwix Memorial Garden/Pathway” which will form an integrated part of the overall project.
