TO suggest the welfare of Limerick mothers and babies was being sacrificed in order to pay off German banks was “outrageous”, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has told the Dail in response to criticisms this week by consultant obstetrician Dr Gerry Burke.
Deputy Willie O’Dea had asked the Taoiseach for a response to Dr Burke’s concerns over an “exodus” of midwives from the Mid-Western Regional Maternity Hospital.
Up to 20 are expected to go next month under a retirement scheme that sees public servants get pensions based on their pre-cut salaries. Combined with those who have already left the Ennis Road hospital, this would leave the Maternity more than 20 per cent short of its complement of midwives and no contingency plan had been presented by Government or the HSE to date, Dr Burke said.

This gutless politician has handed over Irish taxpayer’s money to the very gangsters who are slowly stripping this country of its very life blood. Why are we the people allowing these gutless politicians who are the mouthpieces of our modern-day absent landlords to strip us naked ? It’s time to get up of our collective backsides and take matters into our own hands and show that we the people are not going to continue to pay gangsters and gamblers for their enormous losses forever! This government is a total disaster and is a god sent for the bondholders who have lost on their bets but this gutless bunch are still paying them all their losses. Kenny and his bunch are responsible for the continuing financial disaster that is now visiting every family in the country.
