Long before Doctor Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly made most readers' acquaintance in Patrick Taylor's bestselling novel An Irish Country Doctor, he appeared in a series of humorous columns originally published in Stitches: The Journal of Medical Humour. These warm and wryly amusing vignettes provide an early glimpse of the redoubtable Doctor O'Reilly as he tends to the colorful and eccentric residents of Ballybucklebo, a cozy Ulster village nestled in the bygone years of the early sixties. Those seminal columns have been collected here in The Wily O'Reilly: Irish Country Stories. Book jacket.

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.
