Patients hide in the bushes in pyjamas to evade smoking ban

Hard to know what to say about this story.

It's happening at a Galway hospital, and probably at others. Local HSE area manager John Hennessy does not seem unhappy with pyjama-clad patients hiding in the bushes.
However [apart from exemptions for long-stay patients], Mr Hennessy said there would continue to be "an unapologetic implementation of the smoking ban in relation to visitors and short-stay patients".

Yes, 150 acres, and people have to smoke hiding in the bushes.
