There was severe overcrowding in local hospitals today.

Ireland will never have a modern health service until the government dedicates every possible resource to the current health crisis.

That's according to local Sinn Fein TD Martin Kenny, after emergency departments nationwide recorded some of the worst overcrowding since the beginning of the pandemic.

46 people are on trolleys today in Sligo University Hospital, leaving it the third busiest ED in the country.

Altogether, 145 people are waiting on a hospital bed in facilities across the Shannonside Northern Sound region.

Speaking to Let's Talk this afternoon, Deputy Kenny says Ireland needs to develop a 21st century health service.

The Sligo Leitrim TD says the public cannot become complacent and accept the current crisis.
