Speaking on the matter today Deputy Cahill said: “Dr. Hennessy’s practice closing will be a huge loss to Templemore and it is essential a replacement is found for the town as soon as possible. It’s the least that the residents of the town should expect, especially given that other services, such as the bank, are set to close.”
“A town the size of Templemore needs this resident GP spot filled and I would expect the HSE to work tirelessly to find a replacement. Templemore cannot go without another resident GP” concluded Cahill.
