Adams visits Letterkenny General Hospital to review flood damage
Sinn Féin president, Gerry Adams TD along with local TD Padraig MacLochlainn and Sinn Féin councillors from the area, today visited Letterkenny General Hospital.
The group met with Sean Murphy the hospital general manager and Ann Flood, director of nursing along with other members of the management team and was given a tour of the building.
The Sinn Féin president said:
“The scale of the damage is truly shocking. I am told that 40% of the hospital was decommissioned in the space of an hour.
“I want to commend the heroic work of the hospital staff who managed an evacuation of patients, in torrential rain.
“They have done Trojan work since, not only on the clean-up, but also in securing alternative accommodation for the patients of the hospital.
“This was a major emergency for the hospital and the people of Donegal.
“It will take a year or more to repair the damage and I call on the HSE and the government to provide all that is required to facilitate a return to full services.”
