Statement from The Pat Kenny Show

Cystic Fibrosis Ireland received the following statement from The Pat Kenny Show in relation to comments made on the programme on Wednesday, October 4th.

Pat Kenny and his team at TV3, would like to  apologise for any offence or any upset caused to people with cystic fibrosis and their families by comments made on last night’s show.

Any offence or upset caused was completely unintentional.

We agree with the statement by Cystic Fibrosis Ireland today that the reason why Ireland has the highest rate of cystic fibrosis is because we have the highest incidence of people carrying the cystic fibrosis altered gene in the world.

As acknowledged by Cystic Fibrosis Ireland, Pat Kenny is a sincere supporter of the CF community. Pat Kenny has highlighted the cause of cystic fibrosis sufferers for many years and will continue to do so.
