New Cork Route Bus

The team from Kerry Cancer Support Group along with many service users, volunteers and funders recently launched their brand-new wheelchair accessible Cork Route bus. Fr Tom Looney assisted by Reverend Jim Stephens blessed the bus and its driver Mike Brosnan from Castleisland cut the ribbon to a very positive cheer from everyone present.

Breda from Kerry Cancer Support Group said that they were delighted to see so many people attending especially past service users. She was very thankful to everyone who had made it possible for the charity to put this bus on the road and said that the real job of keeping it there now starts. She also thanked the drivers, who were all present, for their dedication to the service and said that it would be nothing without them.
