A man was airlifted to hospital this evening following what was described as a serious medical condition.

The aero-medical helicopter was called to Hacketstown after the man had been treated by the HSE ambulance service from Baltinglass. The helicopter landed in a football field close to the town at around 7pm.

It was the second time in three days a helicopter had been called to the locality, on Monday the Irish coastguard airlifted a 16 year old boy after a fall from a tree in Knockananna.
