HSE Report on Foster Home in Waterford Community Care Area: Discussion
Mr. Tony O'Brien:
I will tell the Deputy why I appeared to hesitate at the end of that interview. I had had a number of discussions with people directly involved in this on Friday arising from the events here on Thursday. I had not expected that particular question and I was a little fuzzy on one or two of the details, so I gave a slightly broader answer so as not to mislead in any way. I then asked the relevant questions and was able within a couple of hours to confirm the detail to RTE, the broadcaster in question, and that was confirmed to other media as well.
