FindmyPast Ireland adds 1852 Irish Medical Directory

FindmyPast Ireland has tweeted that it has added the first ever Irish Medical Directory to its site at The directory, published in 1852, has some 6500 names included. The site gives it the following description:

This publication was the first full medical directory of Ireland ever published. All doctors and other medical practitioners who had a qualification are listed, including apothecaries (pharmacist) or medical doctors throughout Ireland.
