For over a hundred years, from the Great Famine to the 1950's, tuberculosis, called the White Plague, was the scourge of Irish society. It was particularly tragic in that it frequently attacked young adults, especially young women. Peamount Sanatorium was founded in 1912. It was a key part of the Women's National Health Association's campaign against the disease, led by the redoubtable Lady Aberdeen, wife of the Lord Lieutenant. Since then Peamount has looked after thousands of patients suffering frum tuberculosis of the lung. From the 1960's the outlook on tuberculosis has greatly improved. Nowadays other diseases of the chest continue to be treated in Peamount. There is also a Mental Handicap Unit and two units for the permanently disabled fo all ages.
