IT was the middle of the night in California, but Catherine Martin, who is there on “a week-long tourism and audio-visual trade mission”, wasn’t going to miss the much-anticipated Cabinet meeting to sign off on controversial plans for a new National Maternity Hospital (NMH).

Last Friday, the Arts Minister revealed she would back the NMH’s controversial move from Holles Street to the St Vincent’s Hospital campus in south Dublin having been, until that point, the only remaining Cabinet minister not to back the deal.
