    Thanks to Robert...

    Here’s Tim signing his father’s death cert. He died ‘suddenly’ from ‘natural causes’.

      I was expecting to find the cause of death: ‘mauled by a pack of unlicensed dogs’.

        From a very sketchy look, I haven't found Killeen acting as Registrar from 1889 to early 90s. Maybe he had to wait for incumbents to budge up.

          Ah, thanks, Rob. I started doing that, but remembered that the 1890 medical directory made no reference to such a position. Presumably that was compiled in 1889/90.

            Just as a reminder, these are the entries for Killeen and Swyer in the 1890 medical directory:

              I don't mind saying, I'm puzzled.

                  Records for Coombe Hospital, of Killeen fame.

                    There was some kind of a punch-up at Cloonfeagh in October, 1887 between Killeens (Michael and Robert) and McGuanes (John and Ellen).

                    Ellen McGuane accused Robert Killeen of assaulting her and vice versa. She was convicted but he got off. John McGuane accused Michael Killeen of assaulting him and Killeen was convicted.

                    Old father Michael seems to have been a tyrant where his employees were concerned and not averse to a glass or two. I’m guessing the McGuanes were the Killeens’ servants or tenants of some kind.

                    I wonder who Robert was?

                      Ah, yes.

                      Have a look at this photo of an establishment in the Coombe:

                      My great grandfather, William Barnett, died in the next street.

                        The Coombe was very much a deprived inner city part of Dublin. I think the Coombe Hospital was intended to serve the poor women of the area.

                          Looks a bit of a rough area.

                              Rough - and very smelly, apparently. The stench from O’Keefe’s knacker’s yard was legendary.

                                This is the hospital before it was demolished (obviously). The entrance portico was left behind as a sort of memorial.
