Dublin's fever hospitals:cataloguing the archives of the Cork Street, Clonskeagh and Cherry Orchard Hospitals


  • Royal College of Physicians of Ireland

Project summary

This project focused on the records of three of Dublin’s Fever Hospitals – the Cork Street Fever Hospital, the Clonskeagh Fever Hospital and Cherry Orchard Hospital. During the 19th century, Cork Street Fever Hospital treated victims of the various epidemics which hit Dublin, including typhus, smallpox, scarlatina and diphtheria. Annual reports, patient registers, administrative and financial records, and collections of photographs are just some of the records which have now been made available for research through conservation, cataloguing and digitisation.
