Work on new Emergency Department to be delayed until late February

It has emerged that while the money is available to conclude the new emergency department at Letterkenny General Hospital, work on finishing the project will not start before the end of February.

The project stalled when McNamara Construction were declared insolvent last year.

Councillor Padraig MacLoughlainn has met with the HSE on the issue.

He has been told that the ongoing negotiations between the HSE, the receiver, sub-contractors and the bond insurance company means work cannot restart till at least the end of February.

He says that's not good enough.........
