Children’s hospital - A last chance

The Cabinet will discuss the more than unfortunate fiasco surrounding the as yet unbuilt national children’s hospital today.

When plans for the Mater site were blocked by An Bord Pleanála, the debate about where the facility might be located reopened.

No matter how understanding one might try to be, it is very hard to imagine that a site in the most congested and least accessible area of the country is the right one.

This project is overdue but this delay might be turned to our advantage by giving proper, unbiased consideration, free from the influence of parish pump politics, to a greenfield site.

The possibilities for such a choice seem to outweigh any of the alternatives.
