Doras Bui Information & Support

At a time of personal change, planned or unplanned, a lack of information can cause stress and worry.

Trying to figure out how the social welfare system works, what family law services are available and whether you are entitled to a medical card can be complex and frustrating.

Please Note:

The Drop-in Service here at Doras Buí will remain closed until further notice due to Covid-19 restrictions.

We will update you with a reopen date as soon as it is confirmed.

The Center can only offer emergency appointments during this time.

If you need Information and Support please contact us via email or by telephone.

There was a great turnout for the Drama for Beginners Participants and their performance of scenes from “I Am Edel.” Enjoy!
