Mc Sharry clashes with HSE boss at Oireachtas Health committee

The head of the HSE has accused a TD of trying to cause hysteria over the CervicalCheck scandal.

Sligo, Leitrim and South Donegal TD Marc MacSharry attacked Mr O'Brien's stance, saying this was one of the worst scandals in the history of the state...........
