The fanaticism of anti-smoking zealots in Irish medical circles is demonstrated (again) by this video.
According to the Irish Times today:
Smoking on the grounds of Dublin’s Rotunda maternity hospital is to be stubbed out from Friday, an occasion which was marked by the “ceremonial” demolition of a smoking hut on the hospital campus today.
Dressed in scrubs and a doctor’s coat and watched by bemused staff, the master of the hospital, Sam Coulter Smith took a sledgehammer to the hut which has sheltered smokers for the past decade.
After a few hefty swings of the hammer, a fork-lift was brought in to complete the demolition of the hut ahead of the ban on smoking on the hospital campus.

I'm only surprised Professor John Crown wasn't on hand to witness this "achievement".
He would be very proud.
