A Newry man has hit out at the state of the NHS after he was told he’d have to build his own replacement hips for which he needs replacing we can reveal.
Cyril O’Reilly was told he couldn’t take part in the Connemara cycle tour as a slot for his hip replacement has become available.
A clearly upset O’Reilly told us:
“Luckily I work in Mourne Hydraulic Hose & Fittings so I have the knowledge to build the hips. Now my club Newry Wheelers say I can’t compete after the surgery because I’ll be like the fucking bionic man.”
