    Cork Nursing Home Resident Celebrated A Very Happy 100th Birthday Thanks To A Very Special Guest

Cork Nursing Home Resident Celebrated A Very Happy 100th Birthday Thanks To A Very Special Guest

Mary O’Sullivan’s family were not able to be with her when she reached the milestone at St Luke’s Home in Mahon yesterday due to visitor restrictions, but that didn’t stop staff from making it a birthday to remember.

Mary is from Carrigaline and was born into a farming family in 1920 and so was delighted when staff member Ursula Mc Grath from Mitchelstown brought in a hen for her to pet.

Mary was then given a letter and cheque from President Michael D. Higgins and celebrated her ‘hen party’ with staff and residents:

THE chief executive of a Cork nursing home has said more support is needed to access personal protective equipment.

Tony O’Brien, who is chief executive at St Luke’s Charity and Home in Cork, said it was facing significant challenges in sourcing masks for the residential care centre.

St Luke’s Home employs 220 staff and has 128 beds available for residents.
