O'Glacan, Neil, a distinguished physician who flourished in the early part of the 17th century, was born in the County of Donegal. He studied medicine, and advanced himself to the position of Professor of Medicine at Toulouse, and Physician and Privy-Councillor to the King of France. He travelled in Spain to make observations upon the plague, and ultimately removed to Bologna, where he was much esteemed, and where he probably died. He wrote Tractatus de Peste (Toulouse, 1629), and Cursus Medicus (Bologna, 1655).
