Michael Molony

Author of Irish Ethno-Botany and the Evolution of Medicine in Ireland (1919), urging that ‘a study … of native flora in his own tongue [i.e., Irish] will enable the student to inherit some of the scientific, literary, aesthetic, and religious possessions of the race.’ (Cited in John Wilson Foster and Helena C. G. Chesney, ed., Nature in Ireland: A Scientific and Cultural History, Dublin: Lilliput 1997, p.424.)
