St Mary's Psychiatric Hospital, Castlebar, County Mayo.
We were informed in November 2020 that St Mary's Hospital closed in 2005 and is now used by the Department of Education and the Health Service Executive to provide various services. The archive records remain stored in the building. We were also informed that there is a 'national mental health archive project underway at the moment. The working group is developing a national protocol for accessing HSE mental health archive records. The documentation is currently in draft form, and it is unclear when it will be finalised'.
Access to this material is limited.
