Honan Home, founded as a Charitable Trust arising from the will of Matthew
Honan in 1894, has served as a home for old, aged and infirm men and
women since it opened in 1896. Located at Lovers Walk, Montenotte, it
provided 15 full-board residential places in the Home itself, as well
as 10 places in the self catering chalets adjoining the main House.
due to economic circumstances, it was necessary to close these facilities
in their present form and following an invitation of formal declarations
of interest from charitable and statutory bodies as to the future use
of the Home and grounds, responsibility has been transferred to the
adjoining COPE Foundation.
Celebration Mass, attended by over 100 persons including past residents,
the sisters and friends of the Order of Franciscan Sisters Minoress
(the lowest form of servitude), former employees and many others, was
celebrated by the resident chaplin, Fr. Michael Kidney, on 18th. September
