Julie Dingivan from Fermoy is one of 18 women who died after receiving false results following a smear test in 2009.

A second smear in 2013 revealed that Julie had developed cervical cancer, and she died in April 2017, aged 36.

Julie is one of 221 women who received false negative smear test results and developed cervical cancer. 

Speaking on the Neil Prendeville Show on Cork's Red FM, her husband Paul says Julie was in a lot of pain in the months leading up to her death.
