first_imgThe Mayor of Letterkenny has slammed Minister for Health for snubbing local public representatives during his visit to the town today.Letterkenny General HospitalCllr Gerry McMonagle, who is also a member of the Regional Health Forum West, told Donegal Daily he received no invitation to Minister Leo Varadkar’s visit to Letterkenny General Hospital today.Mayor McMonagle said the secrecy of the visit is akin to the goings on of “the Russian Government.” “It’s like something out of a Russian spy novel. We are elected representatives and I am a member of the Regional Health Forum.“I have not received an invitation to today’s visit and I don’t even know why Minister Varadkar is here.“I would like the time to speak to him about several aspects of the hospital and the healthcare system in Donegal in general.“But we don’t even officially know that he is here so we cannot even ask him. “It is a ridiculous situation. He is answerable to the people of Donegal and, as a publicly elected politician, I should be able to ask those questions,” he fumed.A spokesperson for Letterkenny General Hospital has said that Public Representatives from all political parties, including each member of the Regional Health Forum were invited by the General Manager of Letterkenny General Hospital to attend the opening of the redeveloped catering unit and dining facilities and the redeveloped pulmonary laboratory.“The invitations were issued by email and the General Manager apologises if any addresses are no longer being used.”MAYOR OF LETTERKENNY CLAIMS HE HAS BEEN SNUBBED BY MINISTER VARADKAR was last modified: October 1st, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalgerry mcmonaglehospitalLEO VARADKARlast_img
