This is a wonderful site run by an Irish Priest who believes in giving the full story of happenings within the Church in Ireland and worldwide and not the spin often given by those high up the ranks who give the watered down version or spin. There are interesting things to read about the Church worldwide every day even if you are not an active member of the Church or even a Catholic for that matter. read full story / add a comment

Very little by the look of it... The services in Kerry General are pathetic. The staffing levels are completely inadequate and its embarrassing to see the lack of dignity on show sometimes. Virtually all departments are completely under staffed and cant deliver the basics. It appears that budgets are more important than patients in this establishment. So much so that, staffing levels are more weighted towards the drugs invoices than the drugs themselves. read full story / add a comment

When corruption is uncovered in functional jurisdictions a long established and well tested series of events come into play. Police investigate and if sufficient evidence is collected suspects are brought before the courts to account for themselves. If found guilty, they are given appropriate punishment. In dysfunctional jurisdictions such procedures are often ignored in the interests of protecting the powerful.
