Gout and rheumatism were a 'family failing' -

"my Uncle Patrick, Rector (President) of the Irish College, suffered from them from his youth, but left them after him at Vichy, many years before his death in 1865: Daniel, Parish Priest of Bandon, Cork, who died of fever, in 1845 (time of the Famine), suffered from them, as did John and Denis: my father, Roger, very little." (Source: Letter from nephew Denis (Dean of Cork) a family letter to his cousin Rev. Herbert McSwiney)
