A new community stop smoking service has been launched across Cavan and Monaghan.

Clinics will run in the Drumalee Primary Care Centre, Virginia Primary Care Centre, St Davnet's Campus in Monaghan Town and the Carrickmacross Primary Care Centre.

Speaking to Northern Sound, HSE 'Tobacco Lead' for the region, Fiona Boyle, says it's important for people to identify that they have an addiction in order to access the correct treatment and support.

She added that the clinics will look into a range of different topics, such as the behavioural aspect to smoking and how people can make changes to that.
