Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin (formerly Our Lady's Hospital for Sick Children) in Crumlin, Dublin is Ireland's largest paediatric hospital. It has been caring for Ireland's youth since 1956. It has almost 1200 staff and 243 beds all dedicated to the care of children.

It is planned to transfer the hospital's services to a new children's hospital on the campus of St James's Hospital that is due to open by 2020.

The All-Ireland Champions usually visit each September,[1] or indeed October if the case may be.[2]

Children who underwent a colonoscopy at the hospital between 17 May and 5 July 2013 were involved in a contamination scare after it was revealed they had been exposed to an infection that could not be cured by antibiotics.[3]
