Over 3,000 people in Mayo - including 878 children - are currently awaiting Ear, Nose and Throat appointments.

That's according to Mayo Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway Walsh who submitted a parliamentary questions on the matter, after speaking with a parent who was told her child would have to wait two and a half years for an appointment.

The visiting ENT consultant holds a clinic one day per week at Mayo University Hospital, which Senator Conway-Walsh says is clearly not adequate to meet the needs of the county.

She says delays in treatment can lead to permanent and irreversible damage.
