Health Minister Simon Harris paid an early morning visit to the National Maternity Hospital, Holles Street yesterday following news it would move to a new site in Blackrock.

The minister met with master Dr Rhona Mahony and director of midwifery and nursing Mary Brosnan before moving on to St Vincent's Hospital to discuss the transfer to Elm Park.

But although new mother Alexandra Marzec from Ashbourne was happy to pose for photos following the historic announcement, her newborn son Charlie was not so impressed, as our photo shows.

It's expected that the maternity hospital could move from Holles Street, where it has been based since 1894, to Dublin 4 by 2021.
