‘We haven’ gone away’ - Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital name change protestors

Bob McGuffin speaking against the proposed name change for Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital at the protest in January.

The committee who organised protest marches against the proposed change of name for Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital say they are keeping a watching brief.

In a statement issued today by committee member Bob Mc Guffin they say that that they have not gone away and are keeping a close eye on what they refer to as “this insult to the people of Drogheda”.

“Those responsible for the proposed name change are for now hiding in the tall grass. We are awaiting their next move” they say.

“As soon as we hear that the name change is back on the agenda, we will ramp up the campaign to prevent the heritage of the Medical Missionaries of Mary and Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital being taken from the people of Drogheda and the North East.”
