What next, she'll order that 20 storey National Children's Hospital must be built without planning permission because of some 'emergency'. This is a real planning abuse.

Shows Phoenix Park has no protection from the major landowners in there, the government.

Disgraceful - and I would contend totally illegal; so much for PP being a National Monument :mad:

Interesting that there has been no public reaction to this, does anyone care about planning laws?

Eh in case youve all forgotten there was ans still is what I would call a health care emergency~~~~~~
i.e. There's not enough beds.
The building of this was 100% justified.

Just to be clear, I do not have any problem with building hospitals and agree that it is and will always be justified. My problem is with the lack of planning permission for same and lack of protection for the Phoenix Park.
