    total waste of time.

    i unfollowed the SEPAG Facebook page as everything they were posting was repetitive.

    Halligan will more than likely deliver on it. everyone knows until the Herity report is superseded nobody in the DOH is going to make a decision on it. we just got to wait.

    No, nothing is garaunteed. People need to get out, make a point and make themselves heard.

    Theres many more issues to discuss than the Cath Lab and giving up before the first issue has been solved will mean the rest - University, Jobs - will never be sorted.

    so walking around and shouting slogans to probably a few hundred people is going to get somewhere...... nah i will wait for the new report to be issued.

    this march is about the cath lab only so anything about "the rest - University, Jobs" is irrelevant

    ...And thats why Waterford and the South East has been left behind for so long.

    The other cities would not stand for this crap but we just allow it to happen thinking the problems will sort themselves out.

    Just have a think about how many reports in out favour were ignored and how many against us were taken as gospel. Height of foolishness to take it for granted that a new report will give us what we need considering past reports and the interference in Herity report.

    Been honest he is our only hope on the issue. it was naive of him to say after the Herity report that he was going to pull out of government if 24/7 wasn't achieved.

    if he did, the government would be still standing, Deasy wouldn't make it an issue and Cullinane and Butler will spoof from the opposition bench as usual.

    he did the right thing by staying on and hopefully it will be delivered within this government because FG will be returned in the next election and whether Deasy or Coffey make it a priority in programme for government is a huge unknown.
