As the British Medical Association does not often visit Ireland, I think the present not an unsuitable time to lay before this Section a few facts which I think of special bearing on the management of Trish asylums, and largely affecting the interests of their inmates. My object, however, is as much to elicit the opinions of others as to impart information. When the Psychological Association met in Dublin in 1875 an interesting paper was read by Dr. Stewart on the “Obstacles to the Advancement in Ireland of Psychological Medicine,” and laid principal stress on the fact that 18 out of 22 Irish asylums had no assistant medical officer. Suffice it now to say that they have since been appointed to five other asylums, but that there are still 13 asylums without a second medical officer.
