Michael D. Higgins pays tribute to Vicky Phelan
Last updated on
President Michael D Higgins has described Vicky Phelan as a person of powerful inner strength and commitment to the public good.
The mother of two and cervical cancer campaigner has passed away at the age of 48.
Vicky exposed the Cervical Check scandal in 2018, when she refused to sign a confidentiality agreement in a court settlement against an American test lab.
She was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2017, three years after receiving a false negative smear test result.
David Brennan, who grew up with Vicky, says anyone who knew her, wasn’t surprised at the strength she had.
