The Trust Fund own two properties close to Donegal Town. One of the houses is on the Old Golf Course Road overlooking Donegal Bay and the second house is at Doonan, approx. two klms from the Town Centre.
The Trust Fund also own two properties at Aylesbridge close to Courtown, Co. Wexford. Both of these houses are on the same development about 2klms from Courtown Harbour.
All four houses are available under the Holiday Home Scheme to families who have a child with special needs, who is under 23 years of age.
Each house is fully furnished including washing machine, dryer and fully equipped kitchen. TVís are installed in all houses. Preference will be given to new applicants and to families who have availed of the Scheme on three (3) occasions or less in the past.
Properties at both Donegal and Wexford are wheelchair accessible.
The core period of July and August each year is ring-fenced for members with a special needs child. Outside of this period, consideration will be given by the Board of Management to applications from Staff Associations, Retired Members Association, Garda Management and Employee Assistance Officers who are aware of members, Garda Widows/spouses, who following a period of hospitalisation would benefit from a one-week holiday break at either of the two locations.
The intention is to ensure that the houses are used for the benefit of our members on an all-year-round basis.
