    This womans death is very sad because four very young children now appear to be orphans. Here goes but to me having so many children without a father in the picture and when the sole parent isnt working is foolish in the extreme. There doesnt appear to be grandparents( one Grandfather lives in the UK)or Aunts or Uncles either and this leaves the children very vulnerable.

    Cancer kills lots of young mothers though and lots have cancers that there is no free screening for, at least with cervicalcheck you have some prior warning and thats down to the hard work people like Grainne Flannelly ex Director of cervicalcheck put in. If there is any hereo re cervicalcheck its Doctor Grainne Flannelly and the media drove her out.

    I really object to our President and his wife attending this funeral, the State have no case to answer here so Michael D and his wife should have stayed away. The lowering of the Irish flag is very improper too but those who shout loudest make themselves heard above everyone else.

    I have no words for Ryan Tubridy, he gets his five minutes of publicity while weeping crocodile tears, has he no shame.
    Ms Mhic Mhathúna did work for her local church. She was an Eucharastic minister. She attended the Papal mass in Phoenix park. Bhí sí Ghaeilgóir freisin. She never had an abortion- unlike so many others.

    She raised 5 children, and she also was a devout Christian and Gaeilgóir.

    You spelt freisin wrong.

    Tne Untermenschen have overwhelmed a thread which is dedicated to a woman doomed to die by callous bureaucrats. They should take their snarling elsewhere - perhaps to the budget and the glorious healthcare we can now anticipate.

    Prof Donal Brennan, Professor of gynaecological oncology at UCD explained the whole screening situation very well this morning on Pat Kenny. It's the first item in hour 1

    GDPR Consent

    All tests are exercises in probability. for screening tests, here they are intended to be used in a very large population, there is a certain probability that an error (negligent or otherwise) will occur. There is also the known probability that a single person can have successive erroneous tests, and further that this person will go on to develop the disease.

    This is sh!tty for the person involved, but does not represent a "catastrophic failure" of the screening programme, but rather a known consequence of imperfect systems.

    Separately, i have concerns about the ongoing review of slides being conducted by the RCOG. hindsight bias is a well known phenomenon when reviews are conducted, unless specific measures are put in place to recreate the conditions which existed at the time of the original review. The RCOG reviews will almost certainly be aware that the slides are from women with confirmed cancer diagnoses, and as such makes them more sensitive to any abnormality.

    it might have been better to anonymise the slides and put them back through the cervical check system to see if similar results were generated the second time around.

    This description in bold may turn out to be true, but until now I don't believe there has been a jot of evidence in the public domain to indicate that it is true.

    The Bureaucrats werent callous.

    If they were female they would have used cervicalcheck themselves and the male bureaucrats would have had wives, daughters and sisters who would have used cervicalcheck too.

    This arguement is nonsense, did people not read the Scally report.
