UDublin woman Maura Lennon has worked for overseas aid agency GOAL for the past 30 years. Maura was motivated, on watching a TV report in 1984 on the famine in Ethiopia, to go to Africa to work for the charity. This Walkinstown woman in a quiet hero and her story is an inspiration. How many of us could do such a big-hearted thing? Fair play to her.
DDr Ciara Kelly, the medic on Operation Transformation, was hugely critical of leader Eilish Kavanagh last week. Eilish drank 11 units of alcohol during a day at the races. This was not a good move, but the reaction from Dr Kelly was way over the top. She had no right to say she was "digusted" to witness Eilish's behaviour. Dr Kelly needs a better bedside manner.
