    I agree. The staff in hospitals are always over worked ( so they tell us ) yet they find the time - at the taxpayers expense - to put up unnecessary decorations. Hospitals are there to treat ill people not to celebrate a religious festivity.

    So - there is a crib in the hospital.

    The row is over the crib in the foyer - which seems daft - and cribs in wards - for which it could be argued there are health reasons for keeping them out. Same way as many if not most (?) hospitals don't allow flowers or pot plants in wards. Dust and dirt traps.

    However would a sensible compromise not be to allow pictures?

    Look at this scene of Roman debauchery in St Peter's Square:

    Feminist thinks she's god.

    Nothing new there.

    When asked about its decision, a spokesman said "the wider hospital community is multicultural and therefore multifaith". The conclusion to this is that the hospital should celebrate numerous faiths. However, the hospital seems to be interpreting the term "multifaith" as meaning "no faith".

    NB. DESPITE THE COMMENTS OF POSTERS BELOW, THERE'S NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS MOVE HAS BEEN REQUESTED BY MUSLIMS OR MEMBERS OF OTHER NON-CHRISTIAN FAITHS.
    None of this is unsurprising

    No cribs means no Christmas which means no holidays, gluttony or presents. Either celebrate it or ban it, no point in just being selective. I think this is disgraceful. I was in Mayo and Sligo 2 weeks ago for a wedding. Stopped off in Swinford for refreshments and the town was bedecked with cribs. It was the same in other towns, some even had cribs set up in empty premises. It was lovely because it was snowing too. It felt more like Christmas in the north west of the country 2 weeks ago than what it does at the moment in Dublin.

    Mayo people have always known it's more festive and Christmassy in the West, Lara, but it's nice to have a visitor confirm it.
