In what can only be described as utterly despicably, mother-of-5 Emma Mhic Mhathuna is the latest public victim of smear test scandal.
Emma was mis-diagnosed as having a perfectly fine clear smear test in 2013 but tragically this was not the case.
Roll on 5 years and Emma has publicly announced that her smear test results were wrong and that she has cervical cancer and is dying.
Speaking on radio and television, Emma said that she’s unnecessarily dying and that she doesn’t want to leave her 5 children and that they shouldn’t be without her.
All of this could have been prevented if the smear test scandal had been avoided. What an utter travesty and pure incompetence on the part of the government.
HSE boss Tony O’Brien will finish up in his position as the Director General today – but many claim more heads will roll, possibly Minister for Health Simon Harris or even the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.
