Up to 300 people took part in a protest in Co Donegal this afternoon against conditions at Letterkenny University Hospital.

Organised by the Still Waiting campaign, the protesters marched from the hospital main entrance to the Market Square in the town where various speakers addressed their concerns.

The organisers said that the hospital recently had the largest daily number of patients waiting on trolleys - at 56.

New figures released also show that the hospital had full capacity protocol implemented 242 times in 2017.

Among the protesting groups were Sinn Féin, People before Profit and Donegal cancer services lobby groups.

Among the speakers were Sinn Féin Senator Padraig Mac Lochlainn, Sinn Féin TD Pearse Doherty and Independent TD for Donegal Thomas Pringle.

The Still Waiting Co-Coordinator, Cyril Brennan, said today's protest is only the beginning of the group's campaign and that Donegal is the forgotten county when it comes to health services.
