"I'm glad Dr. Flannelly stepped down, it was the right decision because I do not think she could have it continued
" I think she was bumped anyway. This is a moral and ethical benefit for women.
"I have no doubt that she did a great job in her time, but the clinical nature of her emails to Dr. Hickey, in which she went back and forth was the responsibility to tell me [her case had been misdiagnosed] disgusting.

"Any investigation in these circumstances should be more than a clinical review," the lawyer added.
Ms. Phelan has also named the reason why she did not want a secrecy agreement as part of her The ruling was for other women who might be in her position.
"I thought it was bad enough that there were 15 other women including myself," she told Miriam O & # 39; Callaghan of RTE  "Now that 206 women are involved, I find it absolutely true shameful and there was no way that I would go I did not want to be on my conscience that other women do not know what I did not know for three years.
