Disgraceful: Cleanup begins as Letterkenny Emergency Department flooded again last night

Beyond a joke, Letterkenny hospital gets flooded in the space of 15 minutes for the second year in a row last night. The hospital which is situated in hilly Letterkenny, received more than 7 inches of rain in what is being described by onlookers as “something from the Noah film”.

The hospital got flooded around the same time last year and had a complete overhaul of its drainage system, but that wasn’t enough. The drains that were laid down last year got flooded within a matter of minutes. They couldn’t manage the massive surge of water and so the entire emergency department got heavily flooded leaving patients and staff needing to be evacuated to another part of the hospital.

When will the TD’s pensions be high enough that a surplus can be used for these actual vital services!
