Fianna Fáil health promises ``incredible''

Sinn Fein TD Caoimhghín O Caoláin has described as incredible the promises on hospital waiting lists in the Fianna Fáil manifesto. He said:

``Fianna Fáil is promising to end hospital waiting lists within two years. This is incredible. They were in government for five years and only published their Health Strategy last November. They presided over growing waiting lists and chaos in Accident and Emergency departments. They cut services in hospitals like Monaghan General. They have failed to reform the two-tier health system. Fianna Fáil must be judged on their record and not on their promises.''
