Hundreds to attend Lifford Hospital march

Hundreds of people are expected to converge in Lifford on Sunday afternoon to take part in a protest march against the closure of Lifford Community Hospital.

There is great concern that the HSE intends to close the hospital, with the IMPACT trade union going as far as to say that the decision has been made.

However the Health Service Executive has neither confirmed nor denied if the hospital is to close only to say that it is part of an overall review.

There are also fears that the Sheil and Rock hospitals in Ballyshannon face closure.
