RIP, condolences to his family, he was a good man.
Thank's for that link Gatsby, a poignant and prophetic article..What sad news.
A wistful article Dr Nelligan wrote at the end of the summer stays in my mind. He and his family were saying goodbye to their summer haunt in Co Kerry and returning to Dublin for another year.
There is something of farewell in the article......

A ramble along the warm valley of recollection - The Irish Times - Tue, Aug 31, 2010
Well, I was only saying yesterday that it would be disingenuous of her to praise him as she disagreed with his vision of the health service completely, given that actions speaking louder than words.A true legend of Irish medicine - a gentleman, a scholar and a visionary - may he rest in peace
Tributes have come from the Taoiseach but I have seen nothing from the Minister for Health
Please correct me if I am wrong here. But her apparent silence speaks volumes about her character
While I agree Harney does not share his view of healthcare provision she would not deny his skill and dedication. He was an innovator, an adventurer and a entrepreneur. Before people start heralding him as some defender of statist monopolies in healthcare delivery please also remember that he was one of the founders of the Blackrock Clinic! His squabbles with Harney had a lot to do with protecting the vested interest and hierarchy he was a beneficiary of. But, may the road rise to meet him. RIP.Well, I was only saying yesterday that it would be disingenuous of her to praise him as she disagreed with his vision of the health service completely, given that actions speaking louder than words.
Would prefer if she kept her mouth shut, personally. Insincere praise is none at all.
