Yet the media crows on about foreign health workers basically saying, with some degree of truth I concur that they are holding up the Health Service, perhaps, but, they have undercut the wages of those who worked in that sector, we are somehow meant to be grateful that our Health Service is staffed by a menagerie of people from the developing world caring for our sick and old, because they are good natured sweet people, some may indeed be, however they are here for the money and conditions, not to work for the betterment of the Irish people, a similar point could be made about the Irish Health Care workers currently working in Dubai or Saudi Arabia, there is only one reason they are there and its money.
I dont have a problem with the idea of Health workers coming here to get experience for a few years, I think any Health service will benefit from having a lot of its members with international experience, from this we can draw up what best practice is, it is however immoral to poach the best workers from the developing world and give them residency/citizenship and kudos based on their employment when their own country needs them back at some stage.
There for money and the experience as well. Nothing wrong with being ambitious and working internationally irrespective of nationality but ad hoc dependency on foreign medical staff is not a good long term policy for a 'National' health service, imo. There needs to be root and branch reform but that of course has been said a thousand times.

What the horrible actions of this individual brings also raises is the thoroughness of the vetting of those working in medical facilities in the State?

That is, of course, not to tar everyone with the same brush but it is a legitimate question.

Let's see if any one of our esteemed journalists in the mainstream media dares to raise it?

Like the Taxi industry, vetting is for the date entry to the state. It does not take into account anything beforehand or even proof of identity.

This is a very good point. We’ve read countless articles on the way in which individual issues in individual direct provision centres are representative of endemic issues tantamount to inhumanity. Surely this event, like those events, is ripe for reporting. How can we be certain this man hasn’t done something similar before? Are the Guards investigating that? If this were a DP centre we’d have another expose ready to go. We should do here too. Unless of course there is a reason for briefly covering the case and never returning to it again?

One good thing (if you could cal it good when talking about this horrific case) is that it puts to bed the argument of 'we need foreigners to keep our health service together.
Whenever you hear that argument just say "like that Nigerian cnut who raped a demented old lady in her bed during lockdown."

The argument itself is generally false, at least with respect to non-EU immigration. According to the CSO, only 3% of workers in health and social care are non-EU nationals.

Re garda vetting the problem is that clever scumbags may never have been caught. Two of my sisters had to have garda vetting due to the nature of their work. Both had worked putside Ireland. The procedure is that the police forces of all the countries you have lived in must complete a form about your record (or state there is nothing on record about you). Now in some societies the police may be less than competent, for example the country of origin of the nursing home rapist.

Garda vetting doesnt do much tbh.

And how exactly can they vet a Nigerian with no records here?
