John Street in Kilkenny City.

The march will travel down John Street in Kilkenny City.

A protest march will take place in Kilkenny City on Monday morning over ongoing grievances with the Irish health service.

It's part of a nationwide series of protests happening on April 3 to highlight problems such as long waiting lists, interventions, and a lack of services for children and families with additional needs.

The demonstration will begin at 10am at the HSE offices at Lacken, Kilkenny City. It will follow a route down through John Street, up High Street, ending at HSE Local Health Office at James' Green. A silent demonstration will then take place there.

Organisers are encouraging people to come out and make their voices' heard.
