I’m a Meath woman, and in Meath you don’t go up against the McEntees. They’re fearless and proud. So what happens when the McEntees go up against each other? I was gobsmacked to see Justice Minister Helen McEntee opposing the HSE’s plan to close the ICU and A&E in Navan Hospital and move critical cases to Our Lady of Lourdes in Drogheda.

Her uncle, Gerry, the famous footballer from Meath’s glory days, is the chief executive of Navan Hospital and insists the reform should go ahead. He says patients’ lives are at risk in the small Navan department.
