Protest to take place outside LUH today against maternity restrictions

A protest is being held outside Letterkenny University Hospital this morning to highlight how Covid-19 restrictions are affecting maternity patients and their partners.

Maternity advocacy group AIMS will be holding similar protests at Holles Street and The Coombe in Dublin and Our Lady of Lourdes in Drogheda, Co. Louth.

They're calling for an easing of restrictions that prevent partners from attending scans.

Further protests are planned for later this week in Cork, Killkenny, Westmeath, Laois, Limerick, Wexford and Sligo.
