A protest against the closure of SouthDoc’s overnight service in Fermoy will be held in Mitchelstown on Saturday.

It’s the second protest march organised by the “Save SouthDoc Red Eye Service in Fermoy” group.

The group say the 10pm to 8am service is no longer operating at SouthDoc’s Fermoy office and that people requiring an appointment between those hours will need to go to Mallow or Midleton.

Speaking to RedFM News, local campaigner Ester Fitzgerald says the group have opened several petitions in the area:

"The petitions are all over Mitchelstown, Fermoy, Rathcormac, Conna, Kildorrery, all the nursing homes,  Dairygold in Mitchelstown,  FCI Fermoy. We are pleading with people to please come out and show support. It is gone at night. What's going to happen then? They could take the rest".
