From the "Glenn of Lunatics", said to cure mental illness, to the overloaded asylums of later centuries - with more beds for the mentally ill than any other country in the world - Ireland has had an extensive and often unsettled history in the practice and perception of psychiatry. Kelly's definitive work examines Ireland's unique relationship with conceptions of mental ill health throughout the centuries, delving into each medical breakthrough and every misuse of authority - both political and domestic - for those deemed to be 'hearing voices'.

Through fascinating archival records, Kelly writes a crisp and accessible history, evaluating everything from individual case histories to the seismic effects of the First World War, and considering the attitudes that guided treatments, spanning Brehon Law to the emerging emphasis on human rights. Hearing Voices is a marvel that affords incredible insight into Ireland's social and medical history while providing powerful observations on our current treatment of mental ill health in Ireland.
