Leitrim councillor calls for investment in local health centres

Yesterday’s meeting of the Manorhamilton Municipal District of Leitrim Council heard fresh concerns in relation to the future of the Kiltyclogher Health Centre.



Fine Gael Councillor Sean McDermott tabled a motion calling on the local authority to contact the HSE to see if there are any plans to upgrade and refurbish the centre.



Cllr McDermott says there is a significant population in the area that would benefit from having the facility upgraded and that such a move would help ease the pressure on A&E departments in Hospitals.
