An apology is worth nothing without action
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has offered an overdue apology to Joanne Hayes, the woman caught in the Kerry Babies maelstrom. Ms Hayes was treated appallingly by powerful actors of our State.
She was let down appallingly both by the State and by her society "and that needs to change", the Taoiseach said.
One wonders what changes Mr Varadkar is thinking of and will there be accountability?
