Government secures rebel votes to defeat FG health motion

The Government has defeated an Opposition motion on health cuts.

Despite the Galway West TD Noel Grealish again voting against the Government, Mattie McGrath and other rebels voted with the coalition and they won by 77 to 73.

Earlier the Tipperary North TD, Michael Lowry warned his vote would be in doubt in future if there were cutbacks at Clonmel hospital in the neighboring constituency.
