Separately, Clare’s Independent TD has expressed disappointment after an Bord Pleanala refused planning permission for a prospective new site for outpatient facilities in Ennis.

Permission was sought for a commercial development on the site of the former Curley’s Furniture building on the Kilrush Road which was to include a medical centre to house the facility.

Dr Michael Harty has described the outpatients facility, which currently operates from the grounds of Ennis General Hospital, as dilapidated and unfit for purpose.


He says this decision is a major set- back to health services in the county.
