Tony O’brien Cor­rec­tion and apol­ogy

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

Coun­try rocked by smear test scan­dal, we wrongly stated that the for­mer Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the HSE, Mr Tony O’brien, had been a board mem­ber of a US com­pany at the time that it car­ried out cer­vi­cal smear tests on be­half of the HSE which gave the all-clear to a num­ber of women who de­vel­oped can­cer and that he had since re­signed.

We wish to make it clear that Mr O’brien was not and is not a board mem­ber of the US com­pany which con­ducted the tests. We are happy to cor­rect the po­si­tion and apologise to Mr Tony O’brien for our er­ror and for any con­fu­sion caused as a re­sult. We have agreed to pay Mr O’brien dam­ages and le­gal costs.
