Mary Walsh

IN the Irish Independent of September 18, 2009, under the headline "Our sister should not have died in routine operation", a photograph was published purporting to be that of Mary Walsh whose death was the subject of an inquest at Dublin County Coroner's Court.

It has been pointed out to us that this was not a photograph of the late Mary Walsh, of Carrigwood, Firhouse, Dublin. We are happy to correct this error and apologise to the family and friends of Mary Walsh for the distress caused.
