A group representing GPs has said that more investment is needed in health services in rural areas.
The National Association of General Practitioners says doctors are reluctant to set up a practice in rural areas, as they fear they won't be able to make a living.
The #NoDoctorNoVillage campaign has been set up to highlight the lack of health services in small towns and villages.
"Rural communities, when they lose their access to healthcare services, they often struggle for survival," said Dr Liam Glynn, a GP in Ballyvaughan, Co Clare.
"So we need to send this message to our local representatives, and to central Government, that shutting down these type of services just makes absolutely no sense from any point of view."
