The musical introduction just sets the right mood for these wonderful stories of Irish country life in the 1990s. Ballybucklebo, a charming Irish village, is where cantankerous but highly competent GP Fingal Flahertie O'Reilly tends to his patients using cures and remedies not always found in medical books or journals. These warm and often funny vignettes are told by O'Reilly's long-suffering junior doctor, Patrick. John Keating narrates with empathy and vigor, sometimes making the listener laugh out loud. For example, the good doctor O'Reilly refers to Maggie, an unmarried patient, as "one of nature's unclaimed treasures." Keating's laconic, humorous delivery, which includes a vague but warm Irish brogue, adds warmth to Taylor’s enchanting stories of life on the Emerald Isle.
