Dublin’s Lying-in Hospital is the oldest maternity facility in the world. This fine paper seal attached to an application to Dublin Castle for funds in 1818, features a mother and 3 infants. Now Ireland has the highest birth rate in the EU!

    Michael Turner changed it to The Coombe Women and Infants University Hospital

      Misty water-coloured memories of the way we were.
