I share with the HSE a deep regret about the circumstances described in yesterday's report and acknowledge the bravery of the children of the family concerned who so bravely presented themselves to the inquiry and Mr. Justice John McMenamin. I also commend Ms Norah Gibbons for an extraordinary report which was published in a timely fashion.
