The Senator is right. There was an enormous patriotic response from security researchers, members of the HSE and medical staff. They assembled in an emergency room in the ballroom of the Citywest Hotel and they worked day and night for weeks on end until they were exhausted to try to fix these systems because they knew it was a life and death situation. I went to visit them out there with the Minister for Health, Deputy Stephen Donnelly. What they did was heroic and I want to sincerely thank them all for that.
