Facilities provided at McAuley Place in Naas have been enhanced thanks to a local businessman.
McAuley Place received a donation from Liam Queally of Irish Dog Foods in for the automation of gates to the residential area.
Tony Sourke Public Relations/Marketing Coordinator at McAuley Place said the automation of the gates provided additional security for those living there while preserving their indepence. “The gates lead into the residents area at the rear, providing access for residents and emergency services. People living there can come and go as they please by using a swipe card or entering a code into a keypad,” added Mr. Sourke. He said McAuley Place is grateful for the sponsorship because there was a need to improve security for people living in the 52 apartments.
Residents are generally from the Naas area (including emigrants) and it’s open to men, women and couples aged 65 and over who are capable of independent living. The property was previously part of the old convent and was renovated with an emphasis on participation and interaction with all age groups.
