Apology to Dr Tony Crosby

IN last week's edition we published an article following the inquest into the death of Gerry Ryan under the headline: "It wasn't the stress that killed Gerry Ryan -- it was the cocaine."
The article wrongly suggested that Gerry Ryan's general practitioner, Dr Tony Crosby, may not have treated Gerry Ryan appropriately as a patient, to his detriment.
We wish to acknowledge that this suggestion was wholly unfounded.
We accept that Dr Tony Crosby treated Gerry Ryan in accordance with the highest medical standards. We unreservedly apologise for any embarrassment or distress caused to Dr Crosby as a result of this publication.
