Minister Harris was extremely impressed with the Centre and commended Pat and all who work in the Centre for their vision and dedication in providing such a marvelous centre which many a parish & townland would give their right hands for. He met with and spoke at length with all the people attending the Centre and both he and Min of State Catherine Byrne left full of praise at what they had seen and heard during their brief but very worthwhile visit.
