An exhibition of fine artworks by
Mr Joe A O'Donnell, M. Ch, FRCSI in Memoriam 1943-2009
About Joe O'Donnell
UCC and the Jennings Gallery honour this work posthumously and pay tribute to , not only for his artistic talent but also for his 23 year service as a vascular surgeon and for the great personal qualities for which he is remembered in high esteem by his colleagues, family and friends.
Joe O Donnell was appointed as vascular surgeon at Cork University Hospital and Clinical lecturer in the University Department of Surgery in 1979 following training at the University of Massachusetts and having held the position of Fellow in Vascular Surgery at the New Jersey Medical School in Newark and Consultant Vascular Surgeon at the V. A. hospital in Orange, New Jersey. He retired prematurely in 2002 at the age of 59 following 23 years of service to thousands of patients, leaving a huge gap in the surgical resources of Cork and Munster. At the time of his retirement, he was the only vascular surgeon in the University hospital and was, in theory and in practice, on call for the entire year.
