Publisher's summary

Fans of Patrick Taylor's bestselling Irish Country novels know Dr. Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly as the irascible senior partner of a general practice in the colorful Irish village of Ballybucklebo.

But there was a time, shortly after arriving in Ballybucklebo, that Dr. O'Reilly was not widely accepted by the villagers. This touching short story tells of how O'Reilly, with a little help, began to overcome their objections.

Whether you're visiting for the first time, or you're a long-time resident, you'll enjoy this fun glimpse into life in Patrick Taylor's village of Ballybucklebo.
