McGuinness welcome HSE move to open test centre in Dungarvan

20 June 2021

Sinn Féin Councillor and Waterford representative on the Regional Health Forum Conor D. McGuinness has welcomed the move by the HSE to open a temporary test centre in Dungarvan in an effort to control the outbreak of Covid-19 in West Waterford.

McGuinness said:

“A ‘pop-up’ Covid testing site will open Dungarvan from Thursday 24th June 2021 to Saturday 26th June 2021 between the hours of 11am to 7pm. I had asked the HSE to offer walk-in testing in the area in light of recent worrying developments in West Waterford

“The temporary test centre will be located in the grounds of Dungarvan Community Hospital (Eircode X35WA22). Anyone that has not tested positive for the virus in the last six months can avail of a free test here. Those under 16 must be accompanied.

“The testing centre in Kilcohan in Waterford City remains open and anyone wishing to attend for a test tomorrow is advised to present there. If you are experiencing Covid symptoms please stay at home and contact your GP or the HSE on 1800 700 700.”


“Thanks to the HSE public health management for their quick response to this request”
