St. Joseph's Hospital Oral History Archive

St. Joseph’s Hospital was founded as the Limerick District Lunatic Asylum in 1827 and records of the institution survive in the archive from that date. As part of that archival project, a number of former staff members took part in oral history interviews, so that their story could be fleshed out in the history of the hospital.

You can find the links to those interviews below.
