The Department of Health is supposed to move out of Dublin – but no new location was ever specified for it in the great decentralisation plan.
(Sort of equivalent of waiting for a bed to turn up, I suppose)
So Hawkins House is awaiting some decisions, as to location, decentralisation.
As the state only recently bought it, it would look very bad to sell it again, so nothing too likely to happen to it in the next few years.
Plenty of time for us all to cherish it until it becomes a heritage building.
