Athy creches reopen!

Two of the creches that had closed last week in Athy have reopened this morning, much to the relief of local parents and children. Two new owners have been found to take over after the shock closure of three Footsteps childcare facilities in Athy left parents and staff in limbo, last week. It is understood meetings are under-way to try and reopen the third crèche. 40 jobs have been saved and vital services for the local community have been maintained.
