Anti psychotic drug Quetiapine (Seroquel) is fatal for the elderly, but despite scientific reports confirming its dangers, it is rampantly used by HSE doctors and nursing staff to chemically restrain residents for convenience of the staff. It puts the residents in a state of drug intoxication, that eventually leads to early death from liver failure. Many of these residents do not know their fundamental rights are being denied by public health officials, with the blessing of the Minister for Health.
HSE officials in Irish public nursing homes and institutional facilities, by means of less than forthright NOTICE, present Court applications (often shrouded in secrecy) to the Successor to the Lord Chancellor of Ireland, Mr. Justice Peter Kelly, more or less covertly seeking to make elderly persons a Ward of Court, often times unlawfully, without giving them effective access to Natural Justice.
Without being present, seen, or heard in Court, pursuant to the Lunacy Regulation (Ireland) Act 1871, many elderly persons are divested of their legal capacity, and fundamental rights under the Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights.

Although the general public are under the impression that the Lunacy Regulation (Ireland) Act 1871 has been repealed, it has not in effect been repealed, because the below statutory instrument signed by Frances Fitzgerald on 18 October 2016 exempts subsection 7 (the section to repeal the Lunacy Regulation (Ireland) Act 1871) within the Assisted decision making capacity act 2015.
The net result of all this political wrangling is that until the Minister for Justice makes and signs a new statutory instrument which implements section 7 of the Assisted Decision Making Capacity Act 2015, the Lunacy Regulation (Ireland) Act 1871 still remains in force, This is evinced by the Wards of Court list in the legal diary which confirms hundreds of persons are being subjected non-stop, to applications and hearings under sections, 11,12,68, and 103 of the Lunacy Regulation (Ireland) Act 1871, probably even as I write this.
In fact what I am saying is confirmed by the appointment of Aine O’Flynn as chairwoman of the Decision Support Service, which is set up to inquire into the legality of thousand of Nursing home residents who have been made a Ward of Court probably against their will. This has resulted in all of their assets being confiscated by the State for the benefit of paying Solicitors and Barristers fees ad infinitum, to the detriment of the residents personal care needs.
