Today was busy day as the Scally Report into the Cervical Check Scandal was published. It was an emotional day too for the women and families affected. It is a comprehensive and very good report. I met and spoke with Dr Scally for over two hours. It is now critical that his recommendations are implemented immediately. There is also more work to be done to investigate why, how and when some of this happened. However, today is an important milestone. It creates a pathwa...y to help us eradicate cervical cancer as a main cancer in Ireland and to help protect future generations of both girls and boys. Tonight I’m thinking of Vicky Phelan as without her determination and courage we wouldn’t have reached this milestone. I’m also thinking of Stephen Teap and Lorraine Walsh who have tirelessly worked with Vicky and Dr Scally over the last few months. These are incredible people. Some of the best people I have ever met. The country owes them a debt of gratitude.

I want to thank developer Martin Healy for the interest he has shown in Nenagh by redeveloping the former O’Connor’s shopping site.

The site was left derelict for many years until Martin purchased it and only for him it may have remained so. I was delighted to be able to work with him to develop the site and ensure vibrancy was brought back to that very special site in Nenagh.

This district has a great future with future shopping potential in the area along with the redevelopment of Sheehan’s Hardware and the proposed redevelopment of the Mr Price building as well.

I look forward to all this work going ahead and I know there are other future development plans in the town as well that will compliment these developments.

It shows how Nenagh as a town is growing and that was reinforced recently when it was announced that Nenagh is he fastest growing town in Tipperary.

With new industries such as First Data and new has, water and sewage infrastructure aided to a fantastic location Nenagh will go from strength to strength in the coming years
