Cork South West Deputy Christopher O’Sullivan said the setting up of a vaccination centre in the Ahamilla GAA Complex in Clonakilty is good news for West Cork.
Set up of the complex is expected to begin in a matter of days. “This is very good news for residents in West Cork,” Deputy O’Sullivan said on Tuesday.
“People living in rural communities cannot be expected to travel to Cork city for their vaccinations. This central, rural-based hub will ensure people can get their COVID-19 vaccinations in a timely and efficient manner.
“Fair play Clonakilty GAA Club for making their facilities available for the common good.”
Deputy O’Sullivan said he hoped more vaccination centres would follow in West Cork to reflect the size of the area.
The vaccination hub is one of about 40 being set up across the country to provide Covid-19 vaccines to the wider population in the weeks ahead.
