Celtic Tiger or wha' ?

The Navy were in town yesterday so I brought the lads along and we went on a tour. I noticed that one ship had a collection for a Belarussian orphanage but the Roisin had a collection box for the Children's Ward in Cork Regional.

I can understand that we collect for a remote country which has dire infrastructure and not much money but I think it's a shame that we have to fund-raise for our own hospitals. Surely in these rich days we should have a properly funded health service where our professionals can concentrate on care-giving and not fund-raising ? Maybe a little less tax cutting for Berties buddies wouldn't go astray...
