Miss Fitz was a student midwife in Lourdes hospital while Dr Neary was the consultant there. I recall so vividly a day that this man was going to do the ward rounds. Well in advance, we were sent around to all the women, whose beds formed a U-shape down the walls and across the bottom.
Maman Poulet tells me that Vincent Browne is running reconstructions of Micheal Neary's Fitness to Practice hearings. These are the hearings of the Irish Medical Council, not evidence from the Lourdes Inquiry report. She quotes a line from Neary, telling women what he had done;"I took away the cradle and left the playpen".
