Taoiseach appointee Leo Varadkar, during his second go at the job, is reportedly seeking a quick investigation to see if the death of the female who recently died from meningitis after enduring up to 16h on a trolley among dozens of people was ‘preventable.’

16-year-old Aoife Johnston passed away after long hours of suffering on a trolley at University Hospital Limerick amidst a warzone-like A&E department.

Ms. Johnston was given antibiotics far too late, when she was beyond saving.

Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly appears to be taking a hands-off approach on this one, and also on the wider issue of severe overcrowding.
