Sir Robert Woods, the first surgeon in Ireland to specialise solely in ENT, had an illustrious career which included presidency of the Royal College of Surgeons and receiving a knighthood. He became politicised during the Great War, being elected a Unionist Member of Parliament, and was involved in Anglo-Irish negotiations during secession. Woods’ protégé, Oliver St John Gogarty, not only established a successful ENT practice, but became a renowned author and poet, and was famous for his flamboyant theatrics in the operating room. He was a staunch Republican and Sinn Féiner who became a Senator in the fledgling Irish Free State.

In 1917 a group of Irish doctors volunteered to take over one of the temporary base hospitals in France, and the 13th Stationary Hospital became the 83rd (Dublin) General Hospital. The 17th / 83rd opened only a couple of months after the outbreak of war, and became a specialist unit for managing face and jaw injuries and eye injuries. It remained in operation until long after the 1918 armistice, even after the departure of its Irish staff.
