Questions raised over tragic Dundalk death – Adams

5 November, 2015 - by Gerry Adams TD


Louth TD Gerry Adams has written to the Health Minister seeking answers to a series of questions regarding the tragic death of Dualtagh Donnelly on Monday 26th October.

The Sinn Féin President said:

“I firstly want to express my sincere sympathy to Lindzie, Fionn, Caragh, Oonagh and all of Dualtagh's family at this terrible time.  I visited Dualtagh’s wake last week and saw first-hand the devastating impact his death is having on his loved ones.

“I have written to the Health Minister today seeking answers to serious questions concerning the time lapse between the 999 phonecall being logged and an ambulance arriving at the scene.  

“I am also concerned to know where the ambulance was dispatched from, why it did not arrive until 39 minutes after the initial emergency phone call and whether there were available ambulances and sufficient medical personnel in Dundalk on the night Dualtagh died?

“Dualtagh's family and the community of North Louth deserve to know the answers to these vital questions.”
