Friends we need your help!

The global Covid-19 pandemic has created difficulties for Cuan Mhuire and many charities due to the suspension of existing essential fundraising.

We have as with all charities faced a significant drop in income at the same time as trying to co-ordinate our efforts to ensure that we remain focused on sustaining our services to existing residents. 

On a daily basis we are strictly applying essential spending only, however, we remain under serious financial pressure. We are very conscious that many people and families are also suffering financial difficulties. However, we intend to do everything possible to maintain our service and to help us do that we would be most grateful to receive a financial donation no matter the amount.


Who are we?

Cuan Mhuire is Irelands largest provider of residential treatment for those suffering from addictions. Cuan Mhuire was founded by Sr Consilio in 1966 and our centre is located on the outskirts of Newry, Northern Ireland at 200 Dublin Rd. At our centre, Cuan Mhuire Newry provides a 12-week comprehensive abstinence based residential addiction recovery and housing support service. Our service is available to all persons (male & female) who are 18+ years of age and suffering from Alcohol/Gambling addiction and who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Cuan Mhuire plays a leading and important role by tackling the joint problem of homelessness and addiction.


Over the past 12 months Cuan Mhuire Newry has provided a professional, effective and efficient housing and addiction recovery support service to over 400 residents. However, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has had an adverse impact on the day to day activities of our centre.1587387579_20507341_1585941551469260_2806651187918289156_o.jpg

Whats happening now? 

Our main priority is the safety and well being of our Residents and Staff, in maintaining a high standard of infection control procedures, providing PPE and training for our staff. A significant number of our residents are also homeless.  

All in Cuan Mhuire fully recognise the impact these measures are having on our existing residents and those in recovery. Over the past 20 months we have worked tirelessly to reconfigure our services, in order to comply with Government advice on Covid-19 and indeed the changing face of addiction in our society. Regretfully all of this has placed a severe financial burden on the day to day running of Cuan Mhuire.
