Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (3 Dec 2019)

We genuinely want to do something to ensure that Cuisle is saved. It is a wonderful facility and one which I totally support. By coming in here today and using politics, Senator Leyden denigrates the cause. We will continue to work on...

Seanad: An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business (3 Dec 2019)

Frank Feighan: -----that while he and many others stated that Roscommon Hospital would close, people would die and staff would lose their jobs, I stood in government with the Labour Party and delivered €20 million for the hospital, as well as an air ambulance service that has saved hundreds of lives. There are 500 people working in Roscommon Hospital. Senator Leyden is now giving out because the...

Seanad: Nithe i dtosach suíonna - Commencement Matters: Road Projects Status (28 Nov 2019)

There is significant investment in other road schemes in Sligo, such as the N4 Collooney to Castlebaldwin upgrade and the western distributor road in Sligo. Government investment is good news for the north west. I have said many times that with proper...
