Ennis Hospital bans visitors due to bug outbreak

Ennis General Hospital in Co Clare has announced a ban on visitors due to an outbreak of the winter vomiting bug.

Five cases of the illness have been confirmed at the facility and a ban has been placed on all visitors, except in the case of emergency.

Last week, a similar ban was introduced at a nursing home in the west of the county after two suspected cases of the bug.

The cases proved negative and the unit has since reopened to visitors.
