From November 2010 a leaflet from Fine Gael TD Damien English “Navan News – Health” focusing on Navan Hospital. Amongst the text is the following….
“Fine Gael is committed to the cause of Our Lady’s Hospital, Navan and the need for keeping the services there until the
new Regional Hospital is built.
Damien English TD, Dr James Reilly TD & all local Fine Gael public representatives attended the monster public rally on October
30th in Navan to show our support for the cross community, cross party ‘Save Our Hospital’ campaign.
The Fine Gael health spokesperson spoke about the need for the hospital to remain open. He is a GP in North County Dublin and
is aware that there is not enough capacity at other hospitals in the North East and in Dublin to take Navan’s patients.”
