A monthly medical clinic, conducted by Dr Cathal Berry TD, has been established in Brú na bhFiann, the largest Organisation of National Ex-Service Personnel (ONE) Hostel for Homeless Veterans. Cathal is a member of ARCO and a veteran of the Defence Forces having served in the Army Ranger Wing before qualifying as a medical doctor and becoming the head of the Military Medical School in the Defence Forces Training Centre in the Curragh.

The clinic is now in its third month and is proving to be a great success. From January 2021 Cathal will bring a second volunteer Doctor to the clinic.
ONE is currently looking for Veteran Medical Officers who wish to provide a similar service in their homes in Athlone and Letterkenny and, going forward, in their planned hostels in Cobh (currently under construction) and in Cork City.
ARCO members interested in becoming involved in this very worthy endeavour should contact Ollie O’Connor, CEO ONE, at 0872336643.
