Efforts to avert a strike by the country's nurses have ended without a resolution.
Talks took place earlier between The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation, the Psychiatric Nurses Association and the HSE, to try and reach agreement on issues surrounding pay and conditions.
The unions say they weren't presented with concrete proposals and the strike action goes ahead.
Another meeting between the sides is planned for next Monday.
The INMO will hold the first of six nationwide 24-hour strikes on January 30th, while the PNA is planning a three day stoppage from February 12th.
