Ellard Eppel Trophy

Ellard Eppel was born in May 1923 in Dublin where he obtained his primary and secondary education. He attended Trinity College Medical School graduating in 1949 and then trained in the Richmond and Rotunda Hospitals. He particularly enjoyed Midwifery (Midder) carrying out home deliveries in the surrounding district, which was the practice at the time. Later, it was not unusual for him to attend the birth of a baby whose mother he had also delivered.

He married Beth Abrahamson in 1947. She was his confidante, advisor and love of his life for their entire 55 year marriage. They had four children.

After initially setting up practice in Walkinstown, an area then developing near Dublin, he moved the surgery to Kimmage where he was to practice as a GP for the next 50 years. He served as Vice Chairman of the Irish Red Cross, and was President of the Dublin Jewish Board of Guardians, the Terenure Hebrew Congregation and the Dublin Jewish Students Union and was a member of the Irish Council of Christians and Jews and Medical Council. He was elected to the Council of the Irish Medical Association and was instrumental in helping to amalgamate that organisation with the Irish Medical Union to form the Irish Medical Organisation of which he later was a trustee. In 1991 he became President of the Irish College of General Practitioners, which he considered the highest accolade that a General Practitioner could receive. He was keenly aware of the relationship between societal ills and health and encouraged the College to undertake research projects amongst the population.
