    Fair play to Gary, only an ounce of the story of what he tried to do to help the victims and bring justice to Gibney.

        … via medical malpractice or in a 5 a side? Your above statement appears very vague (perhaps deliberately so) and I think, for this site’s sake) that you should clarify.

          He drew a smiley face on it with a marker when I fell asleep at a party. Great person, great surgeon, great swimmer, great prankster, average 5 a side player

    Lets not forget the role former Chief Justice Denham played in this – her brother argued the case in front of her FFS….

    A few things here…
    One, Gary O’Toole is an absurdly eloquent, dignified and compassionate victim/advocate.
    Two,Ger Gilroy is a ridiculously thorough, measured and astute journalist.
    Both men have demonstrated incredible intelligence and respect in this interview, a rarity these days.
