The Robinson Garden at Earlscliffe is on the Howth peninsula just north of Dublin city at a latitude of 53.3º N. This means that it is further north than Newfoundland and on the same latitude as Manchester in England, Hamburg in Germany, the southern part of the Hudson Bay and Edmonton in Canada and Minsk in Russia. Yet despite being much nearer to the north pole than to the equator, bananas, tree ferns, South African Erica and a range of palms flourish outside without any winter protection.

This is not simply the result of skilled plantsmanship but owes a lot to the unusually favourable microclimate. The garden slopes to the south and benefits by being close to the sea and also from the 180 metre high Hill of Howth on its northern side. With the advantage of the warm current from the Gulf of Mexico almost encircling Howth, it seems that the peninsula can grow a wider range of plants than any other place of similar latitude.

Advantage is taken of the auspicious situation to test the climatic hardiness of plants from all five continents. No plants are protected artificially even in the coldest weather so that realistic information on hardiness can be obtained. 

The Earlscliffe house itself been owned by an variety of people with links to a number of episodes and events in Irish and world history.

The ribs are then spread apart, allowing the surgeon to look directly into the patient's chest. The surgery is then performed via this single large opening. These incisions are known as thoracotomies, and while very safe, are uncomfortable. By utilizing vats, this large incision is avoided, thereby sparing the patient some of the post-operative pain and assisting them with a potentially quicker recovery. In this video, the surgeon uses small instruments that have been introduced into the patient's chest via small (1/2-inch) ports. The surgeon views a video screen that shows the camera image. There are 4 parts to this video: in part 1, the surgeon is "exploring" the chest using vats technology. The device that looks like a fan is used to move the lung around. In part 2, the patient has recurrent collection of fluid in the chest secondary to a cancer, which is referred to as a "malignant pleural effusion". In the video, you see the surgeon sucking out the fluid. The white flashing light is actually sterile talcum powder being introduced into the chest. The talcum powder causes the lung to adhere to the chest wall, hopefully not allowing fluid to collect in this space. In part 3, the surgeon is sampli.
