Family Carers Ireland has organised a Respite Weekend for family carers in Westport on 4th and 5th March 2016, in association with the Westport Hotel Group. The weekend builds on an event successfully organised by Caring for Carers Ireland for many years. In its twenty-fifth year, and its first since the merger of Caring for Carers Ireland with The Carers Association created Family Carers Ireland, the Respite Weekend has seen unprecedented interest. This year’s break will mark a quarter of a century of this always very popular event, as well as celebrating new beginnings for the merged organisation. Family Carers Ireland looks forward to welcoming carers from around the country to the event in March!
