Gerry Adams to address major health rally in Dublin this afternoon
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams will address a major health rally in Dublin this afternoon (Saturday 21st October). Thousands of people are expected in the city centre to demand that the government end the crisis in the health service and deliver on the 3,000 beds required for acute hospitals. Mr. Adams said: It¹s time that the government used public finance to improve the public health system and not to help property developers build private hospitals. Now is the time to put the government under pressure".
