A History of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.
In 1784, a small group of Irish surgeons broke ranks with the Guild of Barber-Surgeons to form the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).
Every Branch of the Healing Art tells the story of RCSI through its contributions to a near-quarter-millennium of surgical, medical and societal change. From nineteenth-century bodysnatchers to the 1916 Rising, through two pandemics and two world wars, with a vivid cast of characters, and reaching right to the present day, Every Branch of the Healing Art is a fast-moving, lavishly-illustrated narrative of a great Irish – and, now, global – institution.
Ronan Kelly holds a BA and a PhD from Trinity College, Dublin, an MFA from University College Dublin, and a DipLIS from Aberystwyth University. A former Fulbright Fellow, his first book, Bard of Erin: the Life of Thomas Moore (2008) was an Irish Times and Times Literary Supplement Book of the Year. He works in RCSI Library’s Heritage Collections.
