Brothers of Charity - Our History
The Brothers of Charity Services is an international, voluntary religious organisation founded in Belgium in 1807, by Canon
Peter Triest. The Brothers of Charity opened their first services in Ireland in 1883 to provide for mental health needs.
In 1938 they started to develop services for people with an intellectual disability and their families. These services grew steadily over the years, so that today the Congregation is the largest provider of services for people with an intellectual disability in Ireland.
