    That's a pretty pathetic argument.

    I've contributed to several fundraisers for Temple Street Childrens Hospital in the past in Donegal. I'll remember to tell those raising the money the next time to go cop themselves on and support a local charity instead
    There IS no argument. Everyone acknowledged Temple Street is a very worthy cause. There was a very reasonable suggestion that a more local cause might have been considered and some Dundalk fans lose the head - one even spouting gibberish.
    Great cause, well done Dundalk, everything they do is beyond question.

    Well done to Bill Carrigan who raised 2,929 for Temple St Children's Hospital on by completing a 53km run.

    He's going to get some abuse from dalymountrower and others Bohs fans when it's revealed he is from Kildare and ignored Naas General Hospital

    The posts from Bohs supporters complaining about the choice of charity are just weird. It's heading towards Gemma O'Doherty Twitter posts weird. Too many chemtrails in Phibsborough?

    It's a paediatric assessment unit. It does great work for bumps and scrapes and minor illnesses. However, life threatening conditions that require specialised and expensive treatment are referred on to Dublin, usually to Temple Street.

    Anyone in the Dundalk area who had had a sick child will be very familiar with Temple Street.

    The treatment offered there is at the cutting edge of medicine and requires constant investment. As the State chooses to waste money building white elephants, hospital such a Temple Street look to the public for investment.

    Dundalk FC were only to happy to assist in raising funds for a hospital that provides acute care for children with life threatening conditions in Dundalk (and many other parts of the country). There are, of course, other excellent acute hospital in Dublin, but to compare Temple Street to the paediatric assessment unit in Drogheda is a fallacious comparison.

    This thread has to contain one of the most petty series of posts I've seen yet on foot.ie.

    Is it a turf-war tribal thing on behalf of some Bohs fans? Do they consider Temple Street their turf? I am struggling to find other explanations.

    Its not a 'big' paeds unit in fairness. There is a simple answer to the choice and that being that a member of staff at Oriel Park had unfortunately reason for a child to need to go to Temple Street and hence the visit by the players and subsequent choice as a charity. There are lots of worthy charities and I have no doubts that if it were Louth Hospice that would have sadly been the needed organisation then they could well have been the choice. But that aside you only have to do a quick google search on the number of malpractice incidents at OLOL in Drogheda to see why there is a general meh attitude locally. From Neary to Shine and multiple large lawsuits also it is a place that does not have the good will of people in the locality. It is an organisation that suffer badlys from poor governance and accountability, it must be catching- this will in all liklihood reach the news one day but the books are bing cooked too... i had better say 'allegedly' where preventable deaths are being recorded as complications of certain illness rather than the principle issue. This is (supposedly)well known, will hit the fan, and is distorting obvious trends that need intervention directly by Dept of Health. While I'm at it how about nurses heading off to do shopping while on duty and colleagues covering, when they return the next nurse heads off and so on - this is happening, not gossip with an agenda. When whistleblowing did happen a whole load of files were destroyed. When efforts to rotate staff were made to put an end to this messing the Union was rolled out. Lack of rotation means deskilling in other disciplines and if rotation does happen well errors can occur. There is no dedicated fulltime training department in the entire hospital either so new protocols get rolled out to the ED for example but there is a piecemeal process to train staff in the new protocol. Top of the heap often with people on trollies, waiting lists for basic diagnostic - last june 2018 I got an appointment for an ECG, no joke, for July 2019!! Thank goodness I had health insurance but many dont. I am not surprised that morale is in the basement among staff either.

    On the Louth County Hospital the people in Dundalk in the past raised hundreds of thousands of to purchase a CT Scanner to be based in Dundalk. It was never switched on, staff were never deployed to use it and it was eventually dusted off and moved to Drogheda anway to replace their kit that clapped out. Once bitten and all that.

    So Dalymountrower, there is a whole lot more to consider than you may be aware of. I will accept that as a PR job for the club to do something with a national childrens hospital rather than local/regional and with it probably the hope was for national coverage of the initiative. If you want to be cynical be cynical on that.

    It was a personal choice by the players based on their experience. There are many worthy charities but some are closer to the heart than others and you may not know the reason for a particular choice, nor should there be need for justification. Its impossible to cover every worthy cause. Indeed the club and supporters raised a big chunk of 100k for a young girl who needs specialist care in the US so dont think that worthy causes local to Dundalk are being neglected either!
