Those seminal columns have been collected in The Wily O’Reilly: Irish Country Stories. In this convenient volume, Patrick Taylor's legions of devoted fans can savor the enchanting origins of the Irish Country series…and newcomers to Ballybucklebo can meet O’Reilly for the very first time. An ex-Navy boxing champion, classical scholar, crypto-philanthropist, widower, and hard-working general practitioner, Fingal Flahertie O’Reilly is crafty and cantankerous in these charming slices of rural Irish life.
Whether he's educating a naive man of the cloth in the facts of life, dealing with chronic hypochondriacs and malingerers, clashing with pigheaded colleagues, or raising a pint in the neighborhood pub, the wily O’Reilly knows a doctor's work is never done, even if some of his "cures" can't be found in any medical text!

I was disappointed that the material wasn't new for the most part, and that some of the stories were attributed to others not some of the characters I had grown to love.

Had to shut it off!
If you are a fan of the series, don't bother with this one. The story does not continue from the others, the time frame doesn't fit with the other books, key characters are strangley non-existent and, bluntly, it's very boring.
