Galway Bay fm newsroom – Almost 4,000 children in Galway are on waiting lists for public eye appointments, with the majority waiting more than a year for an examination.

Figures released to Galway/Roscommon TD Denis Naughten show that 3,782 children are currently on a list in Galway – with three quarters waiting more than 12 months.
