21 June 2018:
A planning application for a major new state-of-the-art hospice facility at Merlin Park will be lodged in the coming days.
The development will be sited on 14 acres of land sold to the Galway Hospice Foundation in 2015 by the HSE.
The proposed new hospice would be a two storey development, comprising 36 specialist palliative care beds, a day-care centre, therapy rooms and education facilities.
A controversial plan to build a new hospice building at Merlin Park in the city has been refused.
Galway Hospice has been refused planning permission by An Bord Pleanála for the new facility which would have been adjacent to Merlin Park Hospital.
Galway Hospice was previously granted planning permission for the new daycare and residential unit by the city council last year.
