Ireland’s Hidden Medicine: An Exploration of Irish Indigenous Medicine from Legend and Myth to the Present Day

Ireland’s Hidden Medicine traces the path and fortunes of Irish indigenous medicine from the legendary god of medicine, Déin Chécht, to today. Unlike the great scribal medical traditions, Ireland’s indigenous medicine is based on medical knowledge passed on orally to each succeeding generation.
