Planning permission has been approved for an extension and refurbishment to the current Donegal Hospice facility at Knocknamona, Letterkenny. 

The proposed development includes the construction of four new apartments.  These additional apartments will accommodate patients and their families, offering a supportive and compassionate environment during their time at the hospice. 

Also included in the development is the provision of additional rooms for example, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and Social Work, as well as training and educational facilities.
