Dr Kathleen Lynn

Mary has secured the unanimous support of the Fianna Fáil Parliamentary Party to name the new National Children’s Hospital after Dr Kathleen Lynn.

Having founded Ireland’s first children’s hospital, Dr Kathleen Lynn deserves to have the new National Children’s Hospital named after her. Naming the hospital after such an inspiring woman will be the first step in acknowledging the role of not only Dr Kathleen Lynn, but the role that women have played in Irish society.  

The campaign now has the support of Fianna Fáil, Sinn Féin, Labour, SIPTU, Fórsa and the National Women’s Council of Ireland. Mary will continue to support the campaign to name the National Children’s Hospital after one of Ireland’s finest champions of social justice.
