I know from my experience abroad that you would be treated much faster in Kenya,” she claimed.Fine Gael councillor Liam Galvin described the current situation at UHL as a “disaster” while Anti-Austerity Alliance councillor slammed the Government for its “botched” centralisation of A&E services in the region.
