The Stanwix Village

Thurles Lions Trust, with the support of Tipperary County Council, are currently advancing a further sheltered housing initiative that will assist in the delivery of much needed housing solutions in the town of Thurles.

Construction work will commence in early 2021 on the redevelopment of the Stanwix Home. Located on Kickham Street this development, which will be known on completion as “The Stanwix Village”, will consist of 9 refurbished one-bedroom apartments in the existing Stanwix Home, 5 new own door apartments and a five bedroomed bungalow which will provide 24/7 supported accommodation for four adults with intellectual disabilities. The development will also have a community centre that will be a resource for the wider community as well as home to a support centre, known as “The Blue Door”, for adults who need support or just someone to talk to.
