Though her lack of respect speaks volumes I doubt any crocodile tears from from her would be appreciated or missed.With respect, she could acknowledge his enormous contribution to Irish medicine, the thousands of lives he saved through his pioneering approach to cardiac surgery etc etc
She could pay her respects while acknowledging that she disagreed with him politically. Cowen did so (even referring to the time he was minister for health and considering the fact that maurice called for his head in is column in the last few weeks)
It is called respect - and that fact that she is incapable of expressing this is a sad reflection on her personally. In fact it is despicable
Declaration of interest - I say this as a medical Doctor, medical columnist and former member of the PDs who was heavily critical of Ms Harney and her performance as Minister
Go neirí an bóthar leis.
