Deputy Carthy said the area has been long impacted by what he described as the "hollowing out of service" at local hospitals in Monaghan and Dundalk as well as from GP shortage in the region.

He added, the services at the Primary Care Centre will only serve to deliver for the people of the area if they are in tandem with well resourced and working services across the health service.

"Various aspects of the health service in our area continually fail to effectively function," Deputy Carthy continued.

"In particular, the dental scheme for children and audiology services in Monaghan have waiting lists that are far too long.

"The shortage of GP services is a constant issue brought to my attention.

"Covid can only be blamed for delays for so long - the people of Carrickmacross expect and deserve solutions from government, not excuses."
