Community Spirit

We ask that residents continue to look in on their neighbours, especially older residents and those who may have underlying issues.

If you do need help (pick up prescriptions, bread, milk etc) please don’t hesitate to contact the residents association committee by email brennanstownresidents@gmail.com

Or you can send us a message on WhatsApp 089 469 1444

The Helpful Contacts Page on this website has information on local services including the Gardaí, pharmacy, plumbers etc

We encourage all residents to adhere to the social distancing guidelines issued by the government.

Keep a space of 2 metres (6.5 feet) between you and other people

Children are not permitted to use corridors in apartment blocks as a play area.

We understand that these restrictions are difficult but please remember these are vital for the health and wellbeing of us all.

Symptoms Of Covid-19

It can take up to 14 days for symptoms of Covid-19 to appear.

Look out for one, some or all of the main symptoms:

  • a cough – this can be any kind of cough, not just dry
  • shortness of breath
  • breathing difficulties
  • fever (high temperature – 38 degrees Celsius or above) or chills

Other symptoms are fatigue, headaches, sore throat, aches and pains.

If you develop symptoms you will need to self-isolate and phone your GP. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. The GP will assess you over the phone. If they think you need to be tested for Covid-19 , they will arrange a test.
