Minister Paschal Donohoe T.D. Visits Brú na bhFiann

ONE would like to thank Paschal Donohoe T.D. the Minister for Public Expenditure, National Development Plan Delivery and Reform, and the local TD for Dublin Central for visiting ONE’s flagship 35-Bed Home for Homeless Veterans Brú na bhFiann (Home of the Brave) in Smithfield, Dublin earlier this morning.

Minister Donohue received a briefing and tour of the facility from ONE’s Board Chairperson Colm Campbell, CEO Cormac Kirwan, and House Managers Richard Dillion and Sinead Black. ONE appreciates the support from Minister Donohue towards the house, organisation and charity.

Óglaigh Náisiúnta Na hÉireann, the Organisation of National Ex-Service Personnel (ONE) is a Veteran’s Organisation, a Registered Charity (RCN: 20044268) & (CHY 13868), a Company Limited by Guarantee (328824), an Approved Housing Body, and a Sustainable Energy Community.

The role of ONE can be summarised in four words – Support, Comradeship, Advocacy and Remembrance. ONE’s services are available to ALL veterans of the Defence Forces, while also facilitating homeless veterans from other countries living in Ireland, from time to time.

ONE currently provides accommodation (board and lodging) in its four residential homes in Athlone, Cobh, Dublin, and Letterkenny. A fifth home is currently being developed in Cork City and there are plans for further homes to address the increasing challenge of homelessness among veterans. ONE has developed a nationwide network of 35 Branches and 15 Veteran Support Centres, and is continuing to develop its professional Veteran Mental Health Support Services, all in support of struggling veterans of the Defence Forces.
