Hellfire Club

Founded over 200 years ago, Bloomfield is a registered mental health charity in south County Dublin providing specialist treatment and care for a range of serious and enduring conditions including Schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s Disease. 

It is also the only organisation in Ireland providing in-patient treatment and care for individuals with Huntington’s Disease (HD) – one of the most devastating neurological conditions known to man.

“So many of our residents require wheelchairs to get around,” said Brendan Phelan, Head of Communications at Bloomfield, “and this walk, marking World Alzheimer’s Day, will help raise funds for wheelchair-accessible transport and to improve the quality of life for patients and residents.”

Those interested in helping can register for the walk, donate and find more information on www.bloomfield.ie or can contact Bloomfield Mental Health Services on (01) 495 0021.
