Additional Notes

From The Publisher*Newly married, Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly is ready to settle into domestic bliss, but there's always something requiring his attention be it a riding accident, a difficult patient, a spot of grouse-hunting, or even some shenanigans at the local dog races. The everyday complications of village life are very different from the challenges Fingal faced nearly thirty years earlier, when, fresh out of medical school, the young Dr. O'Reilly accepted a post at the Aungier Street Dispensary, tending to the impoverished denizens of Dublin's tenement slums. Shifting back and forth between the present and the past, Patrick Taylor's captivating new novel brings to life both the green young man O'Reilly once was and the canny village doctor readers have come to know and admire.
Review Quote*The novel is charming, full of Irish wit and wisdom and, of course, all the village characters we've come to love. For those just discovering the Irish doctor, this book can stand on its own, but it will leave the reader wanting more. - Booklist on Fingal O'Reilly, Irish Doctor "A spirited and compassionate story filled with pastoral Irish imagery, cheerful village life, and heartwarming romance." - -Booklist on An Irish Country Wedding
