The new Magnetic Resonance Imaging unit was installed last November in a purpose-built building.

Declan McCann is Chair of the Friends of St Luke’s which spear-headed a fundraising drive for the machine – the group raised €250,000 which was then match-funded.

He confirmed the news on KCLR Live earlier this morning – listen back to that chat here:
