The O’Neill Centre provides therapy and day services to children with disabilities from the Kilkenny city and county area. There are currently 113 children attending the service. The centre is funded by the Health Service Executive (HSE) but each year there is a shortfall of €170,000 that must be made up through fund-raising. The centre’s fund-raising campaigns are all run on a voluntary basis by parents, staff and friends of the centre, which means that they do not incur high administration/event costs.
