108-Year-Old Irish Woman Has Been to a Doctor Exactly Once
In an interview with the Belfast Telegraph shortly following her 108th birthday in July, County Antrim woman Maud Nicholl (left, with Telegraph reporter Donna Deaney) revealed that she has only been to see the doctor once since 1909.
“I don’t feel my age in the slightest, in fact I have never felt my age,” she said. “I have never had any illnesses. I went to see the doctor once and I had to get an antibiotic, but that was all.”
Nicholl, who has never married, also shared her secret with the Telegraph. “I’ve a good healthy appetite, never missed a meal. And no drinking, no smoking, and no men!” She has outlived four kings, nine taoiseachs, and 26 British prime ministers. ♦
