RTÉ reports:

Around 300 staff at Mount Carmel Hospital in Dublin are set to lose their jobs as the directors of the hospital apply to the courts for the appointment of a liquidator.

While it is unclear when the hospital will actually close, sources said that NAMA was likely to fund an orderly wind-down of the operation and that staff will be paid in the interim.
