That was the question.

Early 1960s.

Mass X-Ray van at the Pillar on O’Connell Street. This was a mobile unit checking the health of Dubliners against TB.

Name those jammers, anyone?

    If that photo was taken today I would expect there would be protesters outside of the public health mobile unit, dragging their knuckles along the pavement sullying the Irish tricolour by wearing it on their bodies and roaring “Freedumb” .
    They would be accompanied by others with mis-spelt placards denying TB exists “Its only a cold”.
    The rest of them would be refusing the PCR test of that time X-Rays
    They would refuse to obey the anti TB signs on the CIE bus that warned against spitting on the bus or be fined.
    The same people would deny their children a BCG vaccine that conquered TB.

      Joe, the EU need to get involved here, you’re single-handedly creating a Strawman Mountain that makes the old CAP Butter & Beef Mountains look like mole-hills. Surely there has to be a few Euro lying around they can throw at you to make you stop?
