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. Later in the interview Anne’s daughter Gillian joined us. She was also a practising doctor, but retired when her father died in the 1990s.
