Sinead alleges that her son was allowed to leave the hospital while he was still on “suicide watch.”

And he has pointed the guilty finger at the Irish health service HSE and the Tusla children’s and family agency.

She tweeted: “Now Tusla wants to discuss ‘a press release’ with me no doubt wanting me to join in his efforts to make my son’s death look like it was not at the hands of the Irish state.

“Tusla and HSE will publish dishonest statements in response to international questions. Lots of lies, refusal to accept responsibility. Reclined as always in the omnipotent and false concern that they claim to have for the privacy of the children who die in their custody.

“I’m going to take some private time now to mourn my son. When I’m ready I’ll tell exactly how the Irish State in the ignorant, evil, selfish and lying ways of Tusla and the HSE allowed and facilitated his death. Magdalene Ireland never left. Ask the young people.

“And any statement from Tusla that suggests they a) did the best they could b) care or c) have the deepest condolences for anyone other than their attorneys, it’s a bunch of shitty traps that have killed too many children and not is going to wash. this time. Too many children die under Tusla’s watch. (sic)”

In response to Sinead’s allegations, the HSE told MailOnline: “The HSE cannot comment on individual cases when doing so could reveal information in relation to identifiable persons, breaching the ethical requirement on us to comply with our duty of confidentiality.”
