McGrath: Govt 'not listening' to local TDs

There is further pressure on the Goverment today after a another TD indicated that it can no longer rely on his support.

Fianna Fáil backbencher Mattie Mc Grath has said he has informed the Government Chief Whip John Curran that his continued support for the Government "depends on the retention of acute services at South Tipperary General Hospital in Clonmel".

Deputy McGrath lost the Fianna Fáil whip during the summer, after opposing the stag hunting bill.

He said he told John Curran that he feels local TDs are "no longer being listened to" when it comes to plans for our health service.
