In some very welcome news this morning it has been confirmed that Manorhamilton Childcare Services CLG has been given a reprieve and is expected to re-open next week.

The service, which closed on Friday, September 20 provides childcare for babies right through to children attending after-school.

At the time it closed 99 children were being cared for and 22 staff were employed.

Fears had been raised that the service would not full re-open but a meeting between the Board of Management and representatives of Pobal last night heard that the service will be full reopened after a temporary plan was agreed about the operation of the service.

The meeting, described as "extremely positive" follows a meeting of parents earlier this week.

We will update this story as we get more information.
