Patients are asked to consider your options before attending the ED.
Mullingar Regional Hospital is dealing with overcrowding again today.
Hospital management has issued a statement to say staff are working to manage current in-patient and covid bed capacity.
You're asked to consider your options before attending the Emergency Department.
Those who are seriously ill or injured will be treated as a priority, but otherwise you can expect long delays.
You're asked to attend the ED alone where possible.
Management is thanking the public for your support and understanding.
