Dingle in fear of losing site for community hospital

Dingle could be in danger of losing the site for their community hospital if they don`t get the green light to proceed to tender next month according to the General Manager of Kerry Community Services. The site was donated by a family on the condition that plans for the project were continually active. However they have been stalled since last year.An issue has arisen at Departmental level over the provision of ongoing funding once the facility is built. The proposed 72 bed roomed hospital has cost 1.2 million euro to date. Tom Leonard says if they don`t get permission next month it will set the project back years.
