A protest will take place in Westport this Saturday afternoon, to highlight the scaling back of services at the town's MacBride Community Nursing Unit.

In recent months, both the respite and daycare services at the HSE-run home have been suspended, with staff shortages being blamed.

Westport-based Councillor Brendan Mulroy, the Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council, claims nurses are reluctant to take up jobs at the home, as they're only being offered 3-month contracts.

The Save Our MacBride Services group will be protesting on The Octagon at 2pm this Saturday.
