McDonagh, Patrick (1826–1889)

We note the death, on the 24th inst., of Dr. Patrick McDonagh, a well-known Sydney medical man. The Dr. was born in county Fermanagh (Ireland) on November 13, 1826 and after being admitted into the ranks of the medical practitioners he settled for a time at Cape Town. He afterward proceeded to Melbourne. After a short residence in that city Dr. McDonagh came on to Sydney, where he had resided for many years. He was long connected with the Sydney Hospital, and was surgeon to the Volunteer Artillery forces of the colony. The doctor took a warm interest in educational and charitable matters; and in the time of Archbishop Vaughan he had an active part in the measures which were taken for the building of St. Mary's Cathedral.
