Radio station has to apologise for rumour comments

category national | disability issues | news report author Friday March 12, 2010 14:03author by Listener Report this post to the editors

stories about Ministers private life have been current for a while

A Dublin radio station was forced to issue a personal apology to Minister Mary Harney yesterday after claims about her private life were made on air. Harney's long trip to Australia and New Zealand and absence from the country during the X-ray crisis in Tallaght Hospital has been a source of controversy. You can hear the comments at the link.

However, the radio station was forced to make an unreserved apology to Ms Harney after Nell McCafferty made personal comments about the minister on 'The Tom Dunne Show'.

Bosses at the station immediately contacted Harney's office after the comments were aired.

Newstalk Radio chief executive Frank Cronin said "It shouldn't have happened. We don't support the comments that were made."

However, Nell McCafferty last night insisted she would not apologise to Mary Harney.
"I have nothing to add beyond what I have said. No, I won't apologise," she said.

It is not known whether Mary Harney has threatened legal action. Rumours about her private life have been doing the rounds for many years, but this is the first time they have come up on a radio show.

Nell Mc has lost the plot a long time ago. It is sad to see one so turned on at one time, tuning out of reality. She herself sounds pretty drunk most of the time she is on TV or radio. She even made the claim that she diddnt know they were on air...her and Tom Dunne. A rediculous notion, which when made, rang completely and thoroughly of in-sincerity.
Wether Harney is an alcoholic or not, or wether she admits it or not is irrelevent. Insignificant I would say in relation to the damage she is doing to the health service.... Plans to close 120 hospitals, open 'centres of excellence' for fee paying customers, funded by investments from her own friends who have no interest only profit in our collective well being.

I often wondered why Nell Mc Caffery is invited on any TV or Radio Station for her opinions
to be aired either visually or by ear , she has run her course & she ought to know it ;

Fair play to Nell- telling it like it is and showing up the Irish media for the tame, lame puppies they are. Can you imagine any other country in the developed world letting a scandal go on like this without a whisper in the press?
