HSE to roll-out six further walk-in test centres across Ireland

The Health Service Executive (HSE) is set to continue the roll-out of a number of walk-in Covid-19 test centres across Ireland.

The service will operate alongside testing for those who are symptomatic or close contacts of a confirmed case of Covid-19.

The new walk-in centres will open in Drumshambo, Co Leitrim on Friday (23 April), and in Tuam, Co Galway on Monday (26 April).

Walk-in testing will also become available at the testing sites in Letterkenny, Co Donegal, Castlerea, Co Roscommon, Nenagh, Co Tipperary and Kilcohan, Co Waterford.

“Increasing the number of people we test helps us better understand the nature of the transmission of the Covid-19 virus and helps support the strategic approach to identify any variants of concern within our communities,” Niamh O Beirne, HSE National Lead Test and Trace said.
