Letterkenny General Hospital was hit by flooding tonight.

Part of the Accident & Emergency Department was flooded.

Sandbags were erected by quick-thinking staff and while some water got in, it could have been worse.

A fleet of tankers attended the scene and assisted the fire bridage in removing surplus water.

Admissions to the A&E Department had to be diverted.

The mop up-operation is continuing
