Newcomers to Ballybucklebo can meet O'Reilly for the very first time. An ex-Navy boxing champion, classical scholar, crypto-philanthropist, widower, and hard-working general practitioner, Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly is crafty and cantankerous in these charming slices of rural Irish life. Whether he's educating a naive man of the cloth in the facts of life, dealing with chronic hypochondriacs and malingerers, clashing with pigheaded colleagues, or raising a pint in the neighborhood pub, the wily O'Reilly knows a doctor's work is never done, even if some of his "cures" can't be found in any medical text!

This book is full of wonderful short stories that were originally published in a Journal and add information not found in the other Irish Country Doctor series. Would be a great companion novel to go along with the other books to gain information and insight into the mindset of Dr. Fingal O'Reilly.

These short columns were enjoyable, but the novels are better! I also recognized she of these short stories, which were incorporated into the novels.
