    Visited the GP this week and it cost me €60, up by €10 or 20%.

    I’ll just leave it there.

    And probably 90% of those there are on a Med' Card after being
    transported in on their free bus pass to have their medication paid for!

    A great little country!!!

    Why shouldn't the senior citizens enjoy some small perks in their later years after working hard and paying taxes to this miserable government their whole lives?

    A small perk you suggest!

    The cost of the day could well run in to over €100.

    I personally think the days of free travel and medication should be finished with.
    Charge a seniors rate and that should make visiting a Doctor a lot easier for everyone!

    Given the state of the state pension and the rate of polypharmacy in that population, that would effectively leave them housebound and at risk of imminent risk of death.

    I don't think that really fits with our society (or at least I hope not).

    'Free' public services are a myth, as most, if not all citizens pay some form of taxation, including consumption taxes.
