Priority Telephone Numbers for Important Supplies and Services in Rathkeale During COVID-19 Isolation

There are some products and services that remain essential even if Rathkeale must work through an isolation period associated with the COVID-19 virus. With isolation planning in mind the listed organisations will do their best to supply what is needed. In some cases, they will try to arrange delivery if their customers cannot visit their shops.

Of course, no one can predict the future, so this page is provided for information purposes only and is not a guarantee of available supplies or service.

As of the 31st of March 2020 only some shops and offices are open to careful customers. Others are using a close door system where they will bring your order to the shop door. Many will deliver and the best way to get what you need is to call them. Phone numbers are usually available in the searchable Rathkeale Directory.

However, if shops/offices close or you are house bound and/or vulnerable in the Rathkeale area call the numbers below if you need essential supplies or information. If the office/shop does not answer, call the mobile number. Please have the following information ready: Your full name, telephone number, Rathkeale address and Eircode.
