Remember the CRC scandal?

Remember the CRC scandal. The outrage, the promises to get to the bottom of the matter, the promises to bring people to account.

Here are a few reminders:

Eamon Gilmore:

It’s important that we’re clear on this. This government is determined to wipe out and weed out the practices of the past.

Minister for Health James Reilly:

My position as Minister for Health is that we will use all available options open to us including enforcement and the Gardai and the civil courts to try and get this money back.

Head of HSE:

We have to review all the documentation available but we will be pursuing this to the bitter end and clearly there are many questions to be asked about the legality of some of the decisions made and we will be looking into all these and we’ve already taken legal advice on the matter.

All forgotten now, snowed under by what – about ten subsequent scandals.
