In 1953, Drs Eamonn and Anne Sheehan arrived in Milltown to set up in practice. This interview concentrates on the changes in medical practice over the years, and the prevalent illnesses encountered. Anne spoke about the treatment of brucellosis, the difference pasteurised milk made to the health of the community, and her late husband’s work in osteopathy, which was frowned upon by the people and thought to be a form of witchcraft.
