Teams are working to manage over-crowding again.
Mullingar Regional Hospital's adult emergency department is 'in escalation' this morning.
Teams are working to manage the current adult in-patient and Covid-19 bed capacity, together with scheduled care.
Management is asking patients to consider alternative options before attending the ED.
If you do attend but are not triaged as seriously ill, you may need to wait for a long period to be seen.
Those who require urgent care will be prioritised.
