The Royal Hospital Donnybrook. A heritage of caring 1743-1993 by Helen Burke

Published to mark the 250th anniversary of the hospital this book explores what life in the hospital was like for patients and staff in the 19th century. There are interesting vignettes in this book on the role of "the medical men" and on the emergence and growth of the various specialised professional employments in the health service that are so essential to modern needs. The history of the hospital is a fascinating story set against the backdrop of the Irish state itself.
