The Head of the ICU at the region’s main hospital believes says measures such as wearing masks and the use of covid certs in certain settings won’t cost us much.

It comes amid mounting pressure on hospital ICUs, with 72 covid patients in intensive care this morning, 7 of those at University Hospital Limerick.

The INMO has said that ICU beds are currently like “gold dust” with the nurses union raising concern about the further easing of restrictions.


Intensive Care Consultant at University Hospital Limerick, Dr Catherine Motherway says the system is currently under pressure and every effort is being made to provide a safe level of care.
