A retired medical consultant, Pat Humphreys was born in the Curragh in After studying medicine in Dublin, she went to Manchester to specialise in anaesthesia, returning to south Tipperary as a consultant in She married an RAF pilot, who retired from service after inheriting a farm near Limerick, where they moved in the late s.
Humphreys retired in , and four years later her husband, Chris, died from cancer. I went to it and I guess you could say I was hooked. She has been coming back ever since. As well as the serious and invaluable work the docents engage in, they also value the strong social element to their associations. In here everyone is on the same level. We are all interested in research and the finer things, and I would say all the 50 docents are friends. It is quite informal. In keeping with the informality of the programme, Humphreys' current line of research was more a result of a chance reference than any academic insight.
I'm going to write to Wilbur Smith and ask him where he found all that out.
White Ivory from the Museum : A Novel by Roy Carl Weiler (2011, Paperback)
For Sibylle McGovern, the surprising thing is not that she is part of the docent programme, but that she remains in Ireland at all. Originally from Germany, she and her American husband were en route to Panama, when they decided to stop off in Limerick where her father had opened a factory. They decided to stay for a bit and help get the operation off the ground.
Forty years later, and Panama's loss is, as they say, Limerick's gain. It was a time when people stayed at home really. I was interested in history and art and when he grew up, I started to do little bit of tour guiding. I used to travel around Ireland a lot and see all the old buildings and I got into Irish history.
I saw the programme advertised here and thought it would be good in that I would learn a lot from the tours at the museum. I love the work now, the social aspect is very nice, and I can do tours and research my passion, which is jewellery. I've met a lot of very nice people.
For John McCormack, the docent programme redirected his retirement with a renewed sense of purpose. It also allows him to pursue his other passion in life, Irish silver. It's a very big group but we all gel very well and get along great with the staff.

My passion is silver, and I am heavily involved in planning an exhibition that occurs next year. I've had a life-long interest in fine arts and antiques, but this gives me a way to further that interest. I love the work. Really, it keeps me alive.
