HistoryEdit

The hospital was founded as the King George V Hospital in 1909, and was transferred to the authorities of the new Irish Free State in 1922. The hospital was named after Saint Bricín of Tomregan, because of his skill as a surgeon in 7th century Ireland.[2]

In 2005 consideration was given to making the hospital available for public use to ease pressure on accident and emergency departments.[3]
