In light of the disgusting and vile revelations about the Bon Secours Tuam Mother and Baby home and the dumping of babies remains why would any politician of any hue want to be associated with the Bon Secours?

Is it simply because of unthinking stupid insensitivity by Noonan to the Bon Secour victims ?

Or is it because the Bon Secours run profit making private hospitals and their ethos suit a right wing conservative Catholic Fine Gael to the hilt? Maybe he was letting the board of Bon Secours know that Fine Gael would do nothing to impinge on their private profits, they made €2.3 million in profit last year and they have over €70 million in accumulated profits as of the end of 2016

Michael Noonan launched Bon Secours in Limerick yesterday, despite the horror revelations of Bon Secours Tuam. It sez it all about the man and Fine Gael.

Order of nuns that dumped up to 800 babies into a septic tank must be disbanded, says TD
The nuns remained silent in the face of national outrage over the child-dumping scandal which Taoiseach Enda Kenny branded “truly appalling”

The more things change , the more they stay the same.
Government is still 'farming out' social/health responsibilities to exploitative commercial ventures.

As Bridget McCole lay dying, Michael Noonan consented to threatening her and her family with ruin...

Behind Noonan was the swell of established practice, the sense cultivated over long decades in the top echelons of Ireland’s political, business and medical worlds, that if you give an inch, the unentitled mob will take a mile.

Noonan is a stain on our society. Over decades.
He has left us poorer financially and spiritually.
He is not particularly bright has limited understanding of economics (as finance minister he was like one of those dogs the Russians put in space, he sat there as the programme of others was carried out) but his character is marked by belligerence and stubborness.
Also I question his humanity.

The photo op I have no opinion of. Maybe his late wife was nursed at a Bons facility.

Michael Noonan cares little about the sexual abuse and murder of children in this country.
Ask 'Grace'.

He is also a bully.
Anyone weaker than him (in his dinosaur mind) is seemingly not respected.
Any foreign potentate from a big country or "businessman" is kow towed to (Trump as an example).

In fairness how many would turn down treatment in a Bons hospital?
How many of us are grateful to such hospitals for clinical and nursing care?

Why do people use that stupid expression, "in fairness"? How does it add to the statement?

Let's try it slimmed down:

"How many would turn down treatment in a Bons hospital"?

Actually, I for one, would.

It's not a stupid expression.
I for one wouldn't. It's a futile and pointless thing to do.

Nope, He was trumped last night by Mary Lou. Once more she couldn't resist the urge to press her moral indignation button on TV to jump on the band wagon about Irish citizens who were buried in secret in unmarked graves in Tuam.

You really couldn't make this up.

i'm not grateful at all. Their total absence where I am in Germany does not seem to have increased the cost or reduced the quality of medical care here at all.

The Bon Secours congregation is entirely comparable to the big pharmaceutical companies as self-interested players in the healthcare industry. Would we forgive big pharma on the basis of "the good they do" if we found that they had enslaved Irish mothers and starved Irish babies, sometimes to death, in the 1940s, 50s, 60s and 70s?

.....on the charity scam. Just like all the sons and daughters of the Foxrock/Deans Grange/Blackrock/Merrion/Stillorgan holidaymakers.
