The West Roscommon ambulance base at Loughglynn is currently understaffed and under-resourced, providing only a part-time ambulance service.

That's according to Roscommon-Galway Sinn Fein TD Claire Kerrane, who says the Loughglynn ambulance base only operates during the day Monday to Friday, leaving no evening or night-time service and she's calling for a full 24-hour, 7 days per week service.

It's a number of years ago since West Roscommon was identified by HIQA as an ambulance blackspot, along with Mulranny and Tuam - both of which now have a 24 / 7 ambulance service.

Deputy Kirrane is now calling for the resources to be provided to ensure the Loughglynn ambulance base also operates 24 / 7.
