Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly is the irascible senior partner of a general practice in the colorful Irish village of Ballybucklebo. Newly married to his once long-lost sweetheart, the former Kitty O'Hallorhan, he's ready to settle into domestic bliss, but there's always something requiring his attention, be it a riding accident, a difficult patient with a worrisome heart condition, a spot of grouse-hunting, or even some tricky shenanigans at the local dog races. The everyday complications of village life are very different from the challenges Fingal faced nearly thirty years earlier. 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. Yet even as he tried to make a difference, Fingal's tireless devotion to his patients risked costing him his own true love... Shifting back and forth between the present and the past, Irish Doctor brings to life both the green young man O'Reilly once was and the canny village doctor readers have come to know.

Although I found it a challenge to jump back and forth between time periods, I eventually got the hang of it. I enjoyed much of the story and skipped parts that I found to be a little tedious.
Great sense of humour which I enjoyed. Found the medical stuff well written and illuminating. I've enjoyed and look forward to enjoying more of the writer's novels.
