Written answers (Question to Minister for Health and Children)

The Western Health Board provides community services that are funded by my Department. An officer of the board, together with a senior psychologist, attended a public meeting concerning the landslide in Pollathomas on 3 October 2003. They made themselves available for consultation to any member of the community who wished to do so. The board have provided the local community with a contact number for counselling services if they wish to avail of them in the future.
