Work on new Lisnaskea health centre due to begin

However, with the estimated cost of the state-of-the-art building now almost twice originally anticipated, fresh approval will be needed before the project can begin.

However, with no sign of construction getting underway any time soon, Cllr Sheamus Greene wrote to permanent secretary at the Department of Health, Peter May, asking why it not begin and when building would start.
