The Minister for Health is being asked to intervene in the case of a Co Roscommon boy with autism, who may have to wait four years to avail of services.

Roscommon-Galway Fianna Fail TD Eugene Murphy says the 7-year old boy from north Roscommon is currently in 193rd place on a waiting list for the autism service at the Primary Care Centre in Athenry, and it could be up to four years before he receives treatment.

Deputy Murphy is calling on Minister Simon Harris to intervene on this boy's behalf, describing the waiting time as "cruel and shameful"
