Death of Dr. Edward Kittson, Medical Officer of the Nenagh Dispensary for the last 40 years...Mr. O'Brien asked what was the salary then? The Clerk said £80 for the doctor and £30 for the apothecary. Dr. Tracey, who had not been qualified as M.D., but at the same time was considered as skillful as the best, used to visit the patients. When Dr. Geary, Medical Superintendent for the Poor Law Commissioners, heard of Dr. Tracey's visits to patients, he said he would not allow such a practice to be continued. Dr. Kittson said he could not discharge the duties without Dr. Tracey's assistance in that manner. Two doctors were then appointed at £80 a year each. The £80 was afterwards raised to £100.

8th May 1876 Nenage Guardian

His numerous friends in Nenagh will regret to hear that a once favourite amongst them, has just paid the debt of nature, in the person of Dr. Daniel Tracey [born circa 1790]. He had been a resident in Limerick since 1858, when he was appointed resident Apothecary to the fever hospital at John's Gate, a situation he resigned from some eight or ten years ago. He was gifted with talents of a high order, and in his profession, he was one of the old school, and had few superiors. He came of an old race in the Parish of Templemore, and was the 11th child of Patrick and Mary Tracey. Those who knew him will remember him as a gentleman of a bye gone time in which the intellectual faculties were cultivated as well for professional advancement as for the entertainment of the circle in which he moved.

 

20 May 1876 (NG) Death of Daniel Tracey, Esq.

His numerous friends in Nenagh will regret to hear that a once general favourite amongst them, has just paid the debt of nature, in the person of Dr. Daniel Tracey. He had been a resident in Limerick since 1858, when he was appointed Resident Apothecary to the fever hospital at John's Gate, a situation he resigned from some eight or ten years ago. He was gifted with talents of a high order, and in his profession, he was one of the old school, and had few superiors. He came of an old race in the Parish of Templemore, and was the eleventh child of Mr. Patrick Tracey and Mrs. Mary Tracey (otherwise Ryan), and was born on Saturday, November 2nd, 1793, so that he had reached the 83rd year of his age, when death overtook him. He was highly intelligent, had read and remembered much, was witty, anecdotic, full of song and story. Within the last few years his health had been declining; and he paid a visit some time ago to the family tomb in the beautifully situated ancient graveyard in the Abbey of Tyone, near Nenagh, in the expectation of being laid there soon beside the mortal remains of his deceased children and wife; but we have heard that he was buried on the morning of Wednesday in the Cemetery at Mount St. Laurence, Limerick, he having died the day before at his lodgings in Catherine-street in this city, and that the funeral was attended by a few only of his late wife's relatives. The deceased possessed excellent social amenities; those who knew him will remember him as a gentleman of a byegone time in which the intellectual faculties were cultivated as well for professional advancement as for the entertainment of the circle in which he moved. - Limerick Reporter

 

3 June 1876 (N) Dr. Daniel Tracey

His numerous friends in Nenagh (says the Limerick Reporter) will regret to hear that a once general favourite among them has just paid the debt of nature in the person of Dr. Daniel Tracey. He had been a resident of limerick since 1858, when he was appointed resident apothecary to the fever hospital at John's Gate, a situation which he resigned some eight or ten years ago. He was highly intelligent, had read and remembered much, was witty, anecdotic, full of song and story, and some fifty years ago his ballad on "The Brunswickers of the Ormondes" was one of the most popular effusions of the period, and one of the most successful in the delineation of the men who were at that period engaged in the work of opposing Catholic Emancipation.

 

10 June 1876 (NG) The Late Dr. Daniel Tracy

The Limerick Reporter says:- Ex-County Inspector Timothy McMahon, brother-in-law to the late Daniel Tracy, Esq, whose death we announced took place in Limerick on the 16 ult, is about to erect a handsome marble monument over his remains which were interred with every respect in the Roman Catholic cemetery of Mount St. Laurence, close by this city...rather than in the old family vault in the ancient Abbey of Tyrone, near Nenagh, which he was apprehensive had been already overcrowded by the deceased members of his family...[including] deceased wife and children...

 

In the Limerick Reporter, 23 February, 1877, Maurice Lenihan published a report of an interview he had with the late Dr. Daniel Tracy on the famous old classical schools of Tipperary.
