BreastCheck will look at other locations

BreastCheck has been invited to Sligo to look at a number of sites which have been offered in the wake of its decision to relocate its mobile clinic to Collooney.

Local businessman, Finbar Filan says a number of local business people in conjunction with the local authority have suggested sites for the mobile clinic in the town.

BreastCheck has been asked for the specifications it requires and has undertaken to come and look at a number of suggested locations.

"It's amazing the amount of people who have come forward with offers of sites. A group has now been formed from these and suggested sites will be put to BreastCheck once we ascertain what specifications they are looking for.

"It's a service that is moving out of Sligo as things stand but we cannot let this happen if we are serious about growing Sligo.

"According the Ireland 2040 Plan that was launched here, Sligo is earmarked to become the capital of the North West and we should be retaining services, not allowing them to leave," said Mr Filan.
