Love is in the air in the colourful Ulster village of Ballybucklebo, where Dr. Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly has finally proposed to the darling of his youth, Kitty O’Hallorhan. There’s a wedding to be planned, but before O’Reilly can make it to the altar, he and his young colleague, Barry Laverty, M.B., must deal with the usual round of eccentric patients—and crises both large and small.
Being a G.P. in a place like Ballybucklebo often means more than simply splinting broken bones and tending to aches and pains. It can also mean helping a struggling young couple acquire their first home, clearing the name of a cat accused of preying on a neighbor’s prize pigeons, and encouraging a bright working-class girl who dreams of someday becoming a doctor herself. And, if you’re Barry Laverty, still smarting from a painful breakup, there might even be a chance for a new romance with a lovely school teacher, if her passionate political convictions don’t get in the way.
Much has changed in Ballybucklebo, and bigger changes are in store, but the lives and practices of these Irish country doctors remain as captivating and irresistible as ever.

This book makes me happy

I love listening to all the books in this series, narrated so beautifully by John Keating with the Irish lilt and individual character accents. While the stories are not terribly complicated, one tends to be drawn in. This makes it easy to forget one's own problems, while at the same time allowing one to appreciate the difficulties of the average person not that many decades ago. Thank you, Patrick Taylor, and please continue writing about this wonderful village - Ballybucklebo.

A happy listener from Canada

Wonderful Story, Fabulous Narrator

I've purchased most of the books in this series and am always amazed at how entertaining the series can be. Theses are wonderful, wholesome, charming and at times funny stories about life in a small village in Ireland as seen through the eyes of it's two doctors.

The narrater made the stories come alive. His Irish brogue was perfect and at the same time understandable.

A Lovely Heart Warming Story

What did you love best about An Irish Country Wedding?

As always these books are heart warming. Finally Dr. O'Reilly is married and the prospects look good for Kinky.

What did you like best about this story?

The entire story line, the characterizations, as you listen you can actually picture them in all in your mind.

What does John Keating bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The wonderful Irish accent he brings to the reading of the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The last chapter as Barry reminisces about his year spent in Ballybucklebeau. I hope this is not the last book.

Any additional comments?

I certainly hope this is not the last book.
