Abstract:
It was inevitable that 1996 following the year of our 250th celebration would be something of an anticlimax. It could nor have been anticipated however the manner in which 1996 would leave its mark. From the clinical perspective rhe rear brought a new-and difficult problem for the hospital, and indeed society to cope with. In 1996 we faced the difficulty of looking after 42 drug addicted babies born to drug addicted mothers. The medical difficulties involved in detoxifying rhe babies and the larger social problems that they will inevitably face on their discharge provide an insight inro a singularly unpleasant subculture of Dublin life. Improving economic and social circumstances which we have taken as part of modern Ireland have clearly not touched the environment of which these babies will be returning.
