Paschal Donohoe 's biggest regret: 'Not managing the National Children's Hospital better'

Interview: Donohoe is not for turning when it comes to pushing out the pension age to 68

Department of Finance sits a collection of bobble-head figurines and collectibles, including Darth Vader and Chewbacca from Star Wars, the new Doctor Who (Jodie Whittaker), a Dalek and the Flash. “I buy a couple of bobbleheads a year . . . and I’ve a nice collection there. Informed guests sometimes give me gifts,” he says with a smile. The Irish Times Read more: The Irish Times

Yea, and the taxpayer has to pay for yer stupid idiotic decisions. Jasus, if this was a private venture ever politician would be sacked on the spot. When it come to politicians ‘incompetence’ takes on a new meaning. No need to worry. Whoever is coming in will do a better job. Where’s me vomit bowl. He has no regard for nurses and finegael has less.

My regret was putting him in my cabinet. I had miniature samovar from Mumbai that would've looked far better. notmytaoiseach Can someone please tell me, are the design team for the project on a fixed cost for delivering the project or are they on a percentage of the final cost? Not managing it better it’s been in free fall since the sod was turned

Typical shit .. oh sorry about that couple hundred million if he said that at a corporate table he would now be serving at Burger King That would be enough to be fired in any other job. Bullshit Managing better, it wasnt managed in the first place 70m fir a state of the Art Kids Hospital in Germany. Same company again used who under tender and over charge. you’re a disgrace pascal and a dirty accountant to let it happen

New Children's Hospital to be one of the world's most expensive buildingsThe original estimate to build the hospital on a site at St James’s in Dublin city centre was set to be €400 million

Robbing Pete the pensioner to pay Paul the crony builder? Don’t forget broadband Paschal or the Apple tax money there’s another 20billion do I need to go on but hey it’s just tax payers money. GE2020 incompetence My biggest regret is all the oxygen FG steal... Incompetence throughout their administration. Except for taxation of the people.

Should read 'couldn't have fucked it up any better! ' Pure bull. The dogs on the street could have told you to build this on a greenfield site out by Connolly, it could have been the best hospital in the world, could have built a direct Luas line or metro to it linking to the city while the M50 links it to the country. SHAMBLES

The location of NCH is an absolute joke. Centre of excellence my ars..... a nightmare to get to. That's a huge mistske !!!

HSE and Tusla need to work together for disabled children in careThe Children’s Ombudsman Niall Muldoon has criticised both the HSE and Tusla for not adequately making plans for disabled children in care.

Terrible, one of the biggest scandals in the waiting. It’s ok Paschal, your Mams biggest regret is not swallowing you, don’t feel so bad! I doubt it was done through incompetence. just another means of plundering the coffers at the expense of the Irish people so that vested interests and buddies get rich. I would look at who stands to gain from this debacle... contractors, sub contractors, consultants, suppliers,.

There’s still time This is a beyond belief..this fool has wasted a billion...A BILLION euros and he feels a bit cheesed off over it..and the attitude...'ah well....sure whatharm, come on now I put my hands up.'...vote me in again now like good lads..' Biggest regret was not skimming more cash for himself and his cronies

Paschal has zero regrets. Paschal only cares about Paschal. Regrets? If only. Regrets I’ve had a few but the again too few too mention. Spin city LeoVaradkar lecturing all his staff, if they are that desperate for power they are unworthy They made a balls of it and it's only getting worse. Not managing it at all.

Not handling something is a birthday forgotten or some pasta boiling over the favor fine geal did for the happy benefactors handling the chrildrens hospital build to the tune of 10s of millions of tax payer money wasted is more dropping and breaking the trust voter placed in you ‘Not managing expenditure, such as the National Children’s Hospital better’ might be more accurate! dermotbannon
