Please someone make a documentary on TB hospitals in Ireland


Four years ago I wrote a quick throwaway post about TB hospitals in Ireland. For whatever reason it bubbles up very close to the top of any google search on that topic. As a result, I have set of comments there which just have to be read. All of them are interesting, many are heartbreaking. The majority are written by people who were either in such a hospital or had a relation in one.


I implore someone to take this information and do a proper documentary on it before it’s too late and all of these people are gone. These stories have been hidden for far too long, just like so many other parts of our 20th century history in Ireland.

Is anyone out there up to the task?



  1. A documentary on TB hospitals is needed to create for doing great job. Everyone will cheer you in this regard.

  2. We are making one for TG4 on TB ( focus on the disease not just the hospitals) any help with archive pictures, locations etc we would love to hear from you on, airing in December 2015.
