The Republic of Ireland Reimbursement Scheme was set up following Brexit to allow for continued cross-border healthcare.

A walk-in information clinic in relation to the EU's Cross-border Health Directive is open to members of the public in Monaghan town today.

The clinic will take place from 10am until 4.30pm this afternoon in Senator Robbie Gallagher's office, 24 Glaslough Street.
