Book Details

The beloved Irish Country series continues in Fingal O'Reilly, Irish Doctor, an enchanting novel by New York Times, USA Today, and Globe and Mail bestselling author Patrick Taylor.

Newly married, Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly is ready to settle into domestic bliss, but something always seems to be pulling his attention away from home. Between difficult patients, riding accidents, and the shenanigans of the local animals, it seems nothing in the village is eager to let him rest.

The everyday complications of village life are very different from the challenges Fingal faced nearly thirty years earlier, when, fresh out of medical school, he accepted a post at the Aungier Street Dispensary, tending to the impoverished denizens of Dublin's tenement houses.

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.
