Nurses lead condemnation of protest outside Simon Harris’s home

A protest outside Minister for Health Simon Harris’s home on Sunday afternoon been condemned by politicians, the Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation and campaigners.

About a dozen anti-austerity protesters held banners outside Mr Harris’s home in Co Wicklow.

Gardaí said the demonstrators left the scene peacefully after an hour.

Mr Harris was in the house at the time with his wife and their three-week-old daughter. Mr Harris has been under mounting pressure in recent weeks due to the nurses and midwives’ strikes and the spiralling costs of the national children’s hospital.

The Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation (INMO) said it condemned in the “strongest possible terms” protests outside Mr Harris’s family home.

“The protests are completely inappropriate,” it said.

Mr Harris described the protest outside his home as “very frightening” for his family.
