Health Minister Says Construction Of New Hospital Ward Will Be Supervised

The HSE has awarded a contract for a new block of wards at University Hospital Limerick to Western Building Systems. 

42 schools built by Western Building Systems were found to have structural defects including Gaelscoil na gClocha Liath in Greystones.

The Department of Education is pursuing legal action against the developer after 42 schools it built, were found to have structural defects. 

All of the schools need permanent remediation works.

The 14 million euro contract for the 60 bed development was signed in May. 

The UL Hospital Group says the contract is progressing well and it expects the new beds to be open in time for Winter 2020. 

Wicklow TD Simon Harris has refused to comment on whether or not the decision to award the contract was wise.
