It says University Hospital Limerick was one of the worst hit with 1 thousand and seventy one patients on trolleys in November, twice the eqivalent of the county's total bed capacity.

Five other hospitals had over 5 hundred patients on trolleys in Cork, Galway, Letterkenny, Tallaght and Tullamore.
