About 80 women with cervical cancer from this region and across Ireland will travel to Dublin today to hear the Taoiseach apologise to them on behalf of the state.

That represents nearly half of the members of the 221-plus patient support group who are still living.

In the Dáil this afternoon, Leo Varadkar will make a formal apology to those impacted by the CervicalCheck controversy.

He'll say the state should have informed women when they were given incorrect results.

Labour's health spokesperson, Alan Kelly, says the cancer victims were treated appallingly.
