Letterkenny University Hospital second most overcrowded in the country today

There are 42 people on trolleys at Letterkenny University Hospital today.

There are 20 waiting at Sligo University Hospital.

The INMO says an emergency period should be declared by the Minister to deal with the backlog following lat week’s weather.
