UPDATE: Holiday Home Scheme 2021

AYLESBRIDGE, near COURTOWN, CO. WEXFORD & DONEGAL TOWN


DEAR MEMBER,

The Management Committee of the Garda Benevolent Trust Fund have had to take the difficult decision to suspend our Holiday Home Scheme again for the Summer 2021 season due to the ongoing uncertainty with Covid19 and in keeping with the best advices received.

For families that would normally be eligible to apply under the Holiday Home Scheme, i.e. if new to the Scheme or availed of the Scheme on three (3) occasions or less, they may be entitled to avail of €500 by way of assistance to help defray the cost of an alternative and suitable family holiday/break elsewhere in the country.  This will be paid on proof of payment for the holiday.  It is expected payments will be processed at the end of the summer period.

Regards,

JOHN BROSNAN
SECRETARY
