Oral History Archive of Our Lady’s Hospital
Clare Clare County Oral History Project

July 2002. Interviews with former and current staff give an insight into the daily workings of the hospital, giving a history of the institution from the 1940s to its closure. Recollections describe the poor conditions of the 1940s, and the almost continuous changes and improvements in the following decades. Interviews were conducted with staff who lived in the hospital, who worked on the farm and with children of staff who grew up in Our Lady’s Hospital.
