It's not clear when the systems will be back up and running after the sudden malicious attack on the HSE

The head of the HSE says its IT system has been the subject of a major, sophisticated cyber attack.

The entire network has been shut down - but the Covid vaccination programme isn't affected. The Rotunda Hospital has already cancelled most appointments, except for women who are more than 36 weeks pregnant.

The National Ambulance Service is operating as normal, with emergency calls still being handled.
