The meeting, which took place at the Lifford Community Centre, was held to show the massive pubic opposition there is in Donegal to the closure of the unit.
The meeting was held by almost all major public representatives including Deputies Dinny McGinley, Thomas Pringle, Pearse Doherty, Charlie McConlogue and Senators Jimmy Harte and Brian O’Domhnaill.
There were also a number of county councilors present including Gerry Crawford, Cora Harvey Martin Harley and Frank McBrearty.
There was also a questions and answers session at the end of the meeting to discuss ways of moving forward with a consolidated plan to save the hospital.
Among one of the suggestions was that TDs from Donegal South West including Thomas Pringle, Pearse Doherty and Junior Minister Dinny McGinley meet with Health Minister James Reilly to discuss the proposed closure.
One person at the meeting said they had never seen such a well-attended and vocal meting in Lifford in decades.
“There were people there last night from across the county as far away as Inishowen and even Frosses showing their solidarity and support.
“This is only the start of this fight for the people that were there last night.
“The people of the Finn Valley and across Donegal will not allow Lifford Community Hospital to close down,” he said.
