Mary Coughlan’s time as Health Minister proves forgettable

Former Tanaiste and Fianna Fail Deputy for Donegal South West's Mary Coughlan's  brief tenure as Health Minister has proven to be not that memorable.

Mary Coughlan was appointed to the Ministery at the start of this year following the resignation of Mary Harney.

However when the issue of health was discussed last night on TV3's Tonight Show with Vincent Browne even a former colleague of Ms Coughlan failed to recall her time as Health minsiter.

The panel included current Fianna Fáil health spokesperson, Billy Kelleher, a health campaigner, a retired Supreme Court judge and a law academic.
