An Irish Country Village - Irish Country, Bk 2 - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:John Keating (Narrator), Patrick Taylor Welcome to the Village of Ballybucklebo. Come and say hello to Dr. O'Reilly's odd-as-two-left feet patients, his housekeeper, Mrs. 'Kinky' Kinkaid, and O'Reilly's pets, Arthur Guinness, the beer-swilling black Lab and Lady MacBeth, the demonically possessed white cat. And of course, to young Dr. Barry Laverty. — After Barr... more »y's first month as an assistant to crusty Dr. O'Reilly, he has been offered a permanent spot. But Laverty's excitement is dashed when one of his patients unexpectedly dies. The damage to his reputation is enormous, and he and O'Reilly must work to resolve the question of Barry's responsibility for the death. They also have to figure out how to save the four-hundred-year-old village pub. Plans are afoot to not renew the hundred-year lease and instead transform the old pub into a sparkling new tourist trap. To make matters even worse, Patricia Spence, the love of Barry's life, announces she is trying to win a scholarship to distant Cambridge University, all the way in England....
Beautifully evocative of a gentler, simpler time, An Irish Country Village magically captures the charm, wit, and ribald humor of a vanished Irish countryside and its people.

"Irish Country Village" is the follow up to "Irish Country Doctor". Both books were very enjoyable reading. Barry Laverty is a new doctor, working with an eccentric and much loved small town doctor, Fingal O'Reilly. Dr. Laverty has much to learn about small town medicine and the characters of the town are fun to read and you become quite attached to them. These books run along the lines of the "Lumby" or "Mitford" Series of books - great main characters and quirky neighbors - fun reads!
