  • Short Summary

    The Lord Mayor of Dublin lays foundation stone of the new wing of St. Ulstan's Hospital.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Result of Sweepstake. The Lord Mayor of Dublin lays foundation stone of the new wing of St. Ulstan's Hospital."

    Dublin, Eire, Southern Ireland, Republic of Ireland.

    The Lord Mayor of Dublin is presented with a ceremonial trowel. A foundation stone, engraved in Gaelic, is lowered into place and the Lord Mayor begins to tap it with the trowel. A short (mute) speech is made with various dignitaries looking on.

    N.B. Presumably from the title this new wing was being built with proceeds from the Irish Hospitals Sweepstake - a kind of national Lottery.
