Description
Barry Laverty, M.B., can barely find the village of Ballybucklebo on a map when he first sets out to seek gainful employment there, but already he knows that there is nowhere he would rather live than in the emerald hills and dales of Northern Ireland. The proud owner of a spanking-new medical degree and little else in the way of worldly possessions, Barry jumps at the chance to secure a position as an assistant in a small rural practice. At least until he meets Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly. The older physician, whose motto is to never let the patients get the upper hand, has his own way of doing things. At first, Barry can't decide if the pugnacious O'Reilly is the biggest charlatan he has ever met, or the best teacher he could ever hope for. Through O'Reilly Barry soon gets to know all of the village's colorful and endearing residents, including:   A malingering Major and his equally hypochondriacal wife;   An unwed servant girl, who refuses to divulge the father of her upcoming baby;   A slightly daft old couple unable to marry for lack of a roof;   And a host of other eccentric characters who make every day an education for the inexperienced young doctor.   Ballybucklebo is long way from Belfast, and Barry is quick to discover that he still has a lot to learn about the quirks and traditions of country life. But with pluck and compassion and only the slightest touch of blarney, he will find out more about life-and love-than he ever imagined back in medical school. Patrick Taylor's An Irish Country Doctor is a charming and engrossing tale that will captivate readers from the very first page-and leave them yearning to visit the Irish countryside of days gone by.
