Families in the west of Ireland express their frustration at having to wait up to four hours for an ambulance




Residents in the west of Ireland are expressing discontent and frustration at having to wait up to four hours for ambulance services to arrive.

The claims come seven months after a 34-year-old woman almost died after being forced to wait for almost two hours for an ambulance.

Residents believe that the ambulance service is severely underfunded, which is putting lives at risk.

The Government always seems to find money to furnish generous pensions and payoffs to their cronies, while vital services are left to rot.
