A terminally ill Limerick woman who was awarded €2.1m in the High Court over the misreading of her smear test results has said she never wanted to go to court.
Speaking after the hearing in Dublin on Friday morning, Ruth Morrissey said the Taoiseach promised her and other women with cervical cancer they would not face a legal battle for justice.
Ms Morrissey and her husband Paul were awarded damages after suing the Health Service Executive (HSE) and two labs - Quest Diagnostics and MedLab Pathology Limited.
The Office of the Director of Corporate Enforcement (ODCE) has started legal proceedings against the Football Association of Ireland (FAI).

The new claims were made in a second letter from four pathologists at the hospital which was sent to the South West Hospital Group in March.

Proposals have been unveiled to redevelop the north end of O'Connell Street and Moore Street in Dublin city centre.
