It is with great sadness that the National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI) has learned of the passing of Emma Mhic Mhathúna today.

Orla O’Connor, Director of NWCI said,

“We express our deepest condolences to Emma Mhic Mhathúna’s family and friends. We commend her immense bravery and courage in speaking out about the way she was treated and campaigning for a better screening service for all women. Her testimony has been instrumental in bringing to light the serious and inexcusable shortcomings in the treatment of women as part of the Cervical Check scandal.”
