THE head of the Samaritans in Clare has warned that there are “darker times” ahead for the people of Clare but stressed that organisations like the Samaritans will always be there to help.
Gerry Dobbin, head of the Samaritans in Clare, has warned that he cannot foresee any improvement for many people in Clare in the short term but that people, especially men, need to be prepared to share their troubles.
“I think we are headed for darker times,” Mr Dobbin told The Clare People this week.
“I don’t see how we are going to see much of an improvement. I honestly believe that from talking to people and from looking at the overall picture,” Mr Dobbin added.
