The South/Southwest Hospital Group, which includes University Hospital Kerry, has appealed to the public to avoid the Emergency Departments where possible this bank holiday weekend.

In a statement, the hospital group says EDs have seen a sharp increase in the number of patients presenting with ailments that do not require admission.

A spokesperson asked that patients consider all healthcare options, including injury units, GPs or pharmacies as they could be facing long wait times.
