The Grattan Street Stories: Memory of Place was also conducted in collaboration with the HSE.
Many of the services from Grattan Street Health Centre were to move to the new St. Mary's Health Campus (St Mary’s Primary Care Centre) Gurranabraher on the site of the Orthopaedic Hospital. Indeed some of the interviews for the Grattan Street project took place in this new centre.
