This chapter sheds new light on an important group of practitioners in Tudor Ireland: the Gaelic families who practised hereditary medicine across much of the island. It seeks to locate key families geographically and discusses the importance of patronage and travel for individual practitioners. The chapter also explores the significance of warfare and other factors in influencing the work of these medics.
