Grand trumps Royal

A victory today for St James’s Hospital, close to the former harbour of the Grand Canal, over the Mater Hospital, close to the former harbour of the Royal Canal at the Broadstone.

Perhaps, if St James’s needs space to expand, it could take over the former canal harbour; work on its latest development seems to have ceased.

  1. Guinness would be happy too – they objected to high rise development in that area.

  2. Perhaps they might even have some land to sell themselves.

    And a narrow gauge railway system would be just the thing for moving around the vast site. Perhaps with a tunnel under James’s Street (for purposes that will no doubt become apparent). bjg
