“Taylor…is a bang-up storyteller who captivates and entertains from the first word.” ―Publishers Weekly on An Irish Country Girl

“The cozy village of Ballybucklebo and its eccentric inhabitants make the holidays bright.” ―Library Journal on An Irish Country Christmas

“Full of stories and vivid characters, [An Irish Country Village] recalls a good night in a pub. Good, light entertainment.” ―Booklist

Patrick Taylor, M.D., is the author of the Irish Country books, including An Irish Country Doctor, An Irish Country Village, An Irish Country Christmas, An Irish Country Girl, and An Irish Country Courtship. Taylor was born and raised in Bangor, County Down in Northern Ireland. After qualifying as a specialist in 1969, he worked in Canada for thirty-one years. He now lives on Saltspring Island, British Columbia.

John Keating's numerous acting credits include Roundabout Theatre's production of Juno and the Paycock and La Mama ETC's production of Cat and the Moon, as well as various parts with the Irish Repertory Theater and the Irish Arts Center. He is a regular performer with the Independent Shakespeare Company and can also be seen in the HBO original mini-series John Adams, starring Paul Giamatti and Laura Linney. John's audiobook narrations have earned Earphone Awards and an Audie nomination. Most notably, he's read Eoin Colfer's Airman, Avi's The Traitors' Gate, and Jenny Nimmo's The Snow Spider.

I so enjoyed Dr.Patrick Taylor's 6th book in the Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly series, having read the previous five. What a great story teller he is! He captures the Irish culture perfectly. My parents immigrated to Canada from Ballymoney, Co. Antrim, and when I read Taylor's books, I am transported back there (where I have visited twice) and can hear the cadences of my parents' speech and expressions. I hope Taylor is working on the 7th book. (I have bought "An Irish Country Village" as a hostess gift to give to Canadian friends from Holywood, Co. Down. She received her nurses' training in Belfast and I anticipate her enjoyment of Taylor's account.) Thank you, Patrick Taylor! In "A Dublin Student Doctor," it was fitting that he should have a Dr. Greer coming from Ballymoney where the name, Greer, is known from the firm of lawyers in the town. Brilliant! (I plan to get my soon-to-be 88-year-old sister, born near Ballymoney, started on Taylor's books for her February birthday.)

A Dublin Student Doctor lives up to the writings of Patrick Taylor at his best.

This time we are reading about Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly in his early days as a medical school student back in the 1930s.

The novel starts off with Fingal just finishing high school at the age of 18 years old and his father wanting to know what career he intends to pursue. When told he wants to pursue medicine, the old man puts up such a ruckus that young Fingal realizes there's no way he'll be able to go to medical school without his father's financial support, which he has refused to do.

So, on the advice of his older brother Lars, and his mother's support, he goes to sea for four years to raise money for medical school.

Then he is accepted into Trinity University and proceeds to excel in the studies. It is there we meet Ronald Hercules Fitzpatrick (whom we met in An Irish Country Christmas, the third in the Irish Country series), as well as Charlie Cromie (who we met in An Irish Country Village, the second in the Irish Country series) and his sweetheart at the time: Caitlan O'Halloran (Kitty) as a student nurse (who we first meet in the same novel as Charlie Cromie).

In this novel we discover how the relationship between young Fingal and his father was formal and how he got his name (after the famous poet Oscar Wilde). And how his mother wanted to be a doctor herself. His passion for rugby and his dabble into boxing while at sea.

It's a pretty good novel and the 491 pages go by very quickly. It's a pity though that we do not get to learn about his naval escapades. As Patrick Taylor said at the beginning that it would have been too lengthy and so it'll keep for a future novel.

I love Patrick Taylor's writing in the "Irish Country" series. Having read all the books in the series I feel I know the characters as personal friends. Many of the scenes and characters bring back memories of life in the UK in the late 50's and early 60's. The delightful way Patrick's doctors are depicted is much like the practitioners I remember, all of them characters and all ready to give a helping hand. The story line covers the activities of a medical student in Dublin in the 1930's. His trials, tribulations, successes and failures both personal and in his chosen profession. The medical information included is clear and informative evan to me without any medical background or training. This book could well be considered an introduction for subsequent books, but is equally able to stand as a complete story in its own right. An excellent, gripping, well written novel. Patrick, please keep them coming!

This book did not impress me favourably at all. It actually felt like a complete waste of time. It seems to be a prequel to an existing series of books about an Irish doctor. Perhaps if I'd read those books first, I'd have liked this one better, but I doubt it. This book certainly doesn't inspire me to read them. This honestly felt like the author was counting on existing readers to want to read anything about characters with whom they are already familiar. The book was quite boring in parts, and I found myself skipping over paragraphs of medical jargon. The use of flashbacks felt mechanical. I didn't hate the book, but I found it impossible to engage with the characters or the story.

I am now reading Patrick's 7th book. I am a committed fan. His powers of description of nature are unbelievable as are his characters. Lovely humour. I am 5th generation Canadian but there are so many sayings and traditions in my family even today that Patrick refers to and they bring wonderful warm feelings to my heart.
I recently lost one of my sons to Lou Gehrigs disease(ALS) and I started to read these books just after he died and they have been a great source of comfort and distraction to me.

I love Patrick Taylor's books and am in love with is characters. His knack for story telling transports me into the lives of all the folks. This book is more of the same, however, it is a little weak on content. I felt taylor pulled back rather than satisfying some story lines, although, he did try to explain this at the beginning of the book. Could he have expanded the plot? Maybe. Would I have still read it knowing this? You bet!!!
