Calls for emergency funds for Letterkenny hospital

AUDIO: Emergency department will be closed for weeks after floods

There are calls for emergency funds to be made available to Letterkenny General Hospital after it was badly damaged by flood waters. 

The hospital's emergency department was severely flooded on Friday after the nearby River Swilly burst its banks during torrential downpours. 

Fianna Fáil's Donegal TD Charlie McConalogue will meet hospital management later today. He says the Government must help Letterkenny General with its recovery efforts.
