a remarkable man was born in what is now Northern Ireland. His name was Charles Sheils. The Charles Sheils Charity is his legacy.
Charles’ vision was to provide homes for those who really need them, and we are the caretakers of that vision. He created almshouses at five locations across Ireland to provide for those who had fallen on hard times.
The buildings are beautiful and architecturally significant, but even more compelling is the altruistic generosity of spirit and the stories of the lives that have been touched along the way.
