The Coombe Memorial [The Liberties of Dublin]
The plaque reads as follows:
“Towards the end of the 1825, two women in a vain attempt to reach the Rotunda hospital perished, together with their new born in the snow. When this became known, a number of benevolent and well disposed people founded the Coombe Lying-in Hospital in the year 1826 for the relief of poor women. Leading the charitable Committee was a Mrs. Margaret Boyle of Upper Street, Dublin.”
What you see in my photographs was the entrance until 1967 when the hospital moved to a new location.
The old structure was retained and restored by Dublin Corporation as a memorial to the many of mothers who gave birth in the Coombe Lying-in Hospital and also to the generosity of the staff and friends of the hospital.
