      Try these

      This idea was introduced during the very first Inter-Party Government led by John A. Costello, which was set up after the war. Noel Browne was the Minister for Health and he proposed this scheme. He wanted all mothers and children up to the age of 16 to have free medical care. His scheme came under pressure from two very powerful groups, the Irish Catholic Bishops and the Irish Medical Organisation, which represented doctors. The Taoiseach, John A. Costello, came under a lot of pressure and called off his support for the scheme. The scheme was dropped and it caused a huge split in the government as Noel Browne resigned in protest and others joined him also. The end result was the government collapsed and a general election was called with Fianna Fáil returning to power.
