Dermot O'Meara

O'Meara, Dermot, a learned physician, was born in the barony of Ormond, County of Tipperary, and lived at Ballyragget, in the County of Kilkenny, early in the 17th century. According to his own account (questioned by Anthony Wood), he was educated at Oxford, and there took a medical degree. Besides a Latin poem in praise of the Butlers, Heroico Carmine Conscripta (London, 1615), he wrote some treatises on medicine, only one of which was published — Pathologia Haereditaria Generalis (Dublin, 1619). It was afterwards republished with the works of his son Edmund.
