Minister for Finance and Limerick TD Michael Noonan (centre) launching the Bon Secours hospital

Good timing.

Via People Before Profit

Michael Noonan launched Bon Secours in Limerick yesterdayy. This in the wake of the Tuam bodies. The Bon Secours order own a series of private hospitals.

Maybe he was letting the board of Bon Secours know the Fine Gael government would do nothing to the order or their private profits.

Bon Secours made €2.3 million in profit last year and have over €70 million in accumulated profits as of the end of 2016.

People Before Profit have called for vigils at all Bon Secours hospitals for 6pm this Friday.

    Or possibly “Local TD in photo op with new business expansion”.

    But gosh, it was terrible timing.

    Has bon secur done something wrong? genuinely asking. This post seems to be linking them with what happened in tuam.

        Yeah but that doesn’t answer his question -Has Bon Secours done something wrong.

        You might need to explain why 800 children is an unmarked burial site is wrong. Why children left to die from malnourishment is wrong. Why selling babies for money is wrong. Why being violent, vicious and sexually depraved is wrong.

    Just on a point of information the Bons Secours hospitals are a non profit organisation. The money raised goes back into the hospitals or in grants to community initiatives.

      And presumably the 6m euro for the “ambitious plans for the development of Barringtons, including extensive refurbishment, recruitment of additional consultant staff and the introduction of new services.”

      Still a moronic decision to have a photo op now though.

      Yes, Sue the hospitales that serve 200,000 people out of existence.

      I’m sure the HSE is more than able to pick up the slack…..

      Are you a complete dribbler?

    1. anne

      Can you explain to anonanomanom above there why selling babies is wrong.

      He’s wondering have the bon secours nuns done something wrong.

      1. Anomanomanom

        What the hell is wrong with you. You seem to have a massive hard on for me (figuratively speaking). I asked a perfectly rational question, it was answered easily, its the same nuns order as tuam, so again wtf is wrong with you.

        1. anne

          Oh pardon me..

          Yes. Bon Secours. Same order of nuns. Like why else would it be bad timing?

          Stop blaming me for not presuming the elevators don’t go all the way to the top floor like.

        Yeah to be fair to him it looks like he didn’t know they were the order who ran the death camp.

    check out Brid Smith completely dismantling Edna & Baldy today in her speech at the dail

    1. bisted

      …Brid Smith nailed it…this photo is an obscenity…Enda made a great speech…doubt he wrote any of it…certain he didn’t mean any of it…

      1. martco

        yerra another Hollywood passionate speech by Enda just like all the others

        facts speak for themselves Enda, we’re not stupid

        that Brid speech/retort doesn’t seem to be available yet BS but it was about 14:20 ish today

          As far as I know a woman writes his speeches – hence the ’empathy’ and ’emotion’

          1. Brother Barnabas

            I have a woman telling me what to do and say. Rarely get any plaudits for it, though.

    1. Frilly Keane

      ah he’s just making sure there’s someone to change his nappy
      with all this kissing up like

    Is CAB only arsed with Gangland Criminals on the Streets
    and not the assets/ proceeds from Criminal Activity in Institutions funded by the Tax Payer

    1. ahjayzis

      Pretty sure Holy Catholic Fianna Fail helpfully capped the Churches liabilities at around 100 million in the late 90s – the states paid 1.4 BILLION on their behalf since.

      1. Frilly Keane

        they capped the cash to be contributed to the Redress funds

        But CAB have enough powers to go in an seize any asset that was acquired from the proceeds of Criminal Activity

        Pity they only use them then Paul Williams gives them a heads up
