HSE asked to explain tendering process as Nenagh work grinds to a halt

The HSE has been asked to explain why a company which was financially insolvent was hired to carry out work at Nenagh Hospital.

The stoppage of work on the new 4.6 million euro unit at Nenagh Hospital has been described as a significant blow to the town.

An Examiner has been appointed to Manley Contruction Ltd of Duleek, County Meath which had been carrying out the work – the HSE has asked them to vacate the premises.

The unit was due to include 24-beds as well as a single story extension and refurbishment work.

Speaking on Tipp Today Deputy Michael Lowry said the issue raises concerns about the HSE’s tendering process.
