All three of Co Leitrim's Municipal Districts have passed a motion highlighting the need for automatic inquests into all maternal deaths in Ireland.
The motion was first submitted by Cllr Des Guckian at the June 12 Carrick-on-Shannon Municipal District meeting.
It noted that , in response to an exhibition showing in Ennis, Clare County Councillors unanimously passed a Notice of Motion to request the Government to progress the proposed Coroner's Bill as a matter of urgency.
The Coroner's Bill will provide for an automatic inquest into every maternal death in the State, we need to do the same," he said.
He asked the motion be put forward at the Ballinamore and Manorhamilton Municipal District Meetings held recently and it was subsequently passed by all members.
