Since that time, a number of other nurses stepped forward to speak with Paul Cullen, Health Editor of the Irish Times. This took great courage from the nurses concerned and Paul spent a lot of time speaking with nurses and working on their stories. Paul filed stories with two News Editors with the Irish Times and to date the Irish Times have failed to publish those stories. The reasons for the failure to publish are unclear.
On the 18th August an urgent appeal was sent by email to all TD's in Ireland. A second appeal was sent on the 8th September.
A number of TD's have agreed to meet the INFTO in the coming days and weeks (September 2021) Unfortunately, the vast majority of TD's Including the Health Minister Stephen Donnelly, The Taoiseach, The Tanaiste, Former Health Minister Simon Harris and Social Democrats Spokesperson on Health, Roisin Shorthall have not responded to the appeals from the INFTO.
