On Wednesday 2nd December 2015, the Adolescent Service at Saint John of God Hospital celebrated its 10th anniversary.   We had a number of activities to mark this very special occasion including the planting of a Paulownia tomentosa tree by head of the Service, Dr David McNamara. The tree marks the spot where our time capsule is buried, with items that the Service's young people and staff felt were significant or symbolic for 2015.  It will be unearthed again in 2025.
