Clare TD Joe Carey has been admitted to the hospital, and is currently 'lying on a trolley.'

Joe was brought to University Hospital Limerick on Saturday evening.

Posting on Twitter, Deputy Carey says he called for help after struggling to breathe for 30 minutes.

A 'battery of tests' have been lined up for him, and he says this is ironic because he gave up smoking just under a month ago.

However, Joe is hopeful that it is a simple lung infection, and that he'll be back to full health soon.

Mr Carey says he's getting 'great care' despite being stuck on a trolley at UHL.
