The shield contains a semee of poppy heads; the cloud sym-bolizes the drift to the other side by way of haziness (uncon-sciousness) with the healing hand of the physician in attendance. The Supporters, in the form of dolphins, are unusual and were granted for the first time in Ireland. They are contained on the ‘MacDonnell of the Glens ’ Coat of Arms and in heraldic terms provide a link to the administration of the first anaesthetic in Ireland by John MacDonnell, on January 1, 1847, in the Richmond Hospital, Dublin. The natural intelligence of dolphins is acknowledged. The Helmet affords protection to the Shield over which is the Harp of Ireland in the figure Nike (victory) associated with overcoming disease. The wording underneath ‘Salus Dum Vigilamus ’ is literally trans-lated as ‘safety while we watch’—which speaks for itself. Partnership between the Irish College and this international journal will support the academic ambitions of the Irish anaes-thetic community. The Council of the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland and the BJA Board unite in saying Céad mı́le fáilte (a hundred thousand welcomes) to this exciting collaboration.
