Nurses say the region’s main hospital is the most overcrowded in the country once again today.

The latest figures from the INMO show 46 people were waiting for beds at University Hospital Limerick this morning, 25 of those in the emergency department.

The overall figure is 18 more than any other facility in the country and follows a period where trolley numbers remained relatively low at the Dooradoyle facility.
