Just now on Newstalk Pearce Doherty is describing an incident that happened last Tuesday.

A mother phoned the emergency services because her young son was unconscious.

There was only one ambulance on call and one of the paramedics was out sick. There was no cover.

The single paramedic drove to the house and when he got there he called for assistance. None was availible.

The single paramedic then had to to ask the mother to drive to the hospital while he attended to the
child in the back seat!

This all because of cutbacks.

In the same week when Healy Eames is of on a junket costing taxpayers 10's of thousands of euro to china

Sounds unlikely, if for no other reason than insurance cover would not be available. Pearse is a sensible lad, so I would say the OP has not gotten the story correct.

Force majeure would likely apply.

Same county where a woman had to go and collect a guard and bring him to her house to investigate a burglary because he (the guard) did not have a car.

Which part....that she only saw one paramedic or that she ended up driving her son to the hospital while the paramedic worked on her son in the back of the vehicle?

Ireland, a country where we can afford to pay for several army vans and police cars to guide a cash van up to the mint in sandyford on a regular basis but where we refuse to send a paramedic to help saves a child life. Some nation to be proud of for sure.

That post is as useful as an ashtray on a motorbike...utterly useless.

Story sounds plausible when you consider it's a known fact that ambulance crews have to wait for hours in A+E to get their stretchers back because the hospitals don't have spares.

But hey, the troika think we're sound and that's the main thing.

Yes I am
I hope this woman is tax compliant. a lot of people in Donegal not afraid for putting their hand out looking for government help, yet not prepared to pony up
If this is the level of service i was offered i wouldn't pay my tax.

I will presume though that she is tax compliant.

The people in Donegal see what they get for their taxes.

So you believe we are not entitled to police protection or medical services up here? Donegal has long been the forgotten county but we make do with what we have to. Pity it is that way.
