Abstract:
It is a very great privilege and one which is deeply appreciated to be invited to write the Foreword to the 1971 Annual, the first to come from the new hospital. As I write, almost all that we have hoped for and dreamed of for years past has been realised. Even more than that the new hospital is here and the old one lives on. One of the most exciting things about an exciting few weeks in November 1970, was the way in which the new hospital clicked into gear and went moving ahead. Those who remember the 1930's in Ireland and all over the world will appreciate the courage of those who could, even in those days of depression, foresee a new hospital. Those whose main memories are of the 1960's may not fully appreciate that it was only in the same decade a hundred years ago that Ireland began to recover from the effects of the Great Famine when the new St. Vincent's of that time was the youngest of the Dublin hospitals. Now, thanks to the foresight of the last generation- helped by some happily still with us, St. Vincent's is one of the major Irish hospitals. There is, therefore, a very great responsibility on all of us, not only in terms of St. Vincent's but in national terms. Professor P. N. Meenan.
