Protest on the streets of Portlaoise in 2011 to protect hospital

A rally has been called for by the Portlaoise Hospital Action Committee to protest the downgrade of Portlaoise hospital.

The committee says it acknowledges the appetite of the public to demonstrate their protest at the recent leaked reports and comments, which were made by Dr Susan O’Reilly on behalf of the Dublin Midland Hospital Group.

The committee says it will be a peaceful rally called ‘Light for Lives’ Rally' in support of Midland Regional Hospital Portlaoise.

The march takes place on Saturday, December 2 time from 5pm to 7pm.

The rally will culminate at Laois County Council.
