The hospital beds crisis continues to rumble on - and Letterkenny is still hovering near the top of the patients on trolley charts.

This morning there were 19 people on trolleys in Letterkenny General Hospital.

Only Beaumont Hospital in Dublin (29) and Our Lady of Lourdes in Drogheda (28) were worse.

Letterkenny, along with Naas General Hospital, was ranked third in terms of people on trolleys - excluding those in trolleys on wards awaiting proper bed spaces.

The situation has eased only slightly in Letterkenny, compared with last week when figures reached record levels.

Nationally, the number of people on trolleys in hospitals this morning was 363 - down from a peak of over 600 last week.
