O’Brien Calls for Support for Orthopaedic Protest
Sinn Féin TD Jonathan O’Brien has called on people to support today’s rally against the closure of the Orthopaedic Hospital.
Deputy O’Brien said:
“Cork’s Northside has been progressively stripped of health services by successive governments. The Orthopaedic is the last public hospital on the Northside. It must not be allowed to close.”
“I will be supporting the rally outside the hospital today, as will local Sinn Fein councillors Mick Nugent and Thomas Gould. I would encourage everybody in the area who can make it to come out and show their support for retaining local health services in the Northside.”
