No one merits the incessant assault that Mary Harney gets in the media. This is just treating someone like a whipping boy. It's become an actual disgrace at this point. Harney does not control the HSE - that's down to a number of factors including Management, Professor Drumm, the unions (etc etc). She has a modicum of influence over how it's run and I genuinely think she's trying to do a good job. Anyone else, myself included, would have quit and taken the pension ages ago. This has gone beyond legitimate commentary and entered into the realm of bullying. It should not be tolerated.
