Some services, such as discharge, may be restricted or unavailable at the hospital.

Polls show that 60% of people are not happy with the hospital’s plans.

“We have always sought separation of church and state. One cannot interfere with the other. It must be very clear,” Smith told Talk Radio.

“And for the first time in 100 years, the state has the opportunity to take that break, and absolutely this hospital must be 100% completely owned and managed by the state for Irish women and girls.”

Ms. Smith said many questions would be asked to the Minister of Health regarding the deal.

“I think there are a lot of questions about the nature of the lease, and I think there are questions about unresolved documents and maps, and things we haven’t seen.

“What are the uses in different parts of the hospital?

“But when it comes to leasing, Micheál Martin repeatedly told us that 299 is clearly another name of ownership.

“” [Then] We will see later that the lease is accompanied by six terms. “
