The Organisation of Ex-Service Personnel has refurbished the old Social Welfare office on Harbour Row in Cobh.
It has five new en-suites and a day centre to serve the town, which is next to the Haulbowline naval base.

The charity says it's helped a thousand homeless military veterans over the last twenty years.
