Enniscorthy Sinn Féin have welcomed the announcement that missing funding for the vital extension work to Wexford General Hospital has been found. Enniscorthy Sinn Féin Cllr Johnny Mythen said that he commended the decision to go ahead with this essential project and that he felt his party’s campaign to highlight the missing hospital funding had played a significant role in the government’s announcement.
“The Sinn Féin organisation in County Wexford is delighted and surprised,” Cllr Mythen said. “We view this as a victory for the people of County Wexford who supported our ongoing campaigns to safe guard our hospital. The decision to proceed with the project gives a great boost to staff and patients at Wexford General. We say well done to Minister Howlin and well done to all the hard working Sinn Féin supporters for their time, effort and commitment during our recent campaign to highlight the missing funding. I’m sure that everyone’s hearts are lifted by this great news.”
