For the founding members – three Sisters from Enniskillen Convent of Mercy, Sisters Mary Daly, Edel Bannon and the late Helena Hunt – whose dream has been grounded in reality – the objective was to open the door to people who felt they needed a “listening ear”. Mercy has provided building rent free for the past 30 years so that this work can happen.
Established in 1990, the Aisling Centre is dedicated to the promotion of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Aisling is an Irish word meaning ‘dream’ or’ vision’ and the dream is realised through the provision of a safe space where people can find hope and healing at difficult times in their lives.
The Centre is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. It is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors drawn from across the community who are supported by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
