The hospital is dealing with several Covid patients and upsurges in general admissions.

Full bed capacity has been reached at Sligo University Hospital this afternoon.

Management says there's pressure on bed availability which is resulting in significant delays being experienced by patients in the Emergency Department.

On Tuesday 139 people attended the A&E with 173 visiting on Monday.
