We are a normal GP practice, looking after public and private patients.

We are 2 doctors, myself and Dr Sinead Beirne, and a nurse (my Mrs Caitriona O’Sullivan, who is practice nurse, midwife, breastfeeding support etc). We share 3 reception staff with the other GP practice.

We provide the full range of GP services, from cradle to grave, including maternity care, cervical screening, childhood and travel vaccination, contraception, health screening, ECG, lung function testing, chronic illness care, blood tests, repeat prescriptions and so on, but we also have some specialized services that are not commonly found in most practices:

  • Minor surgery procedures, from ingrown toenails and cysts to moles and skin cancers, wart freezing etc. We take referrals from all over Dublin and carry out approx. 700 procedures annually
  • We provide ultrasound scanning, including general abdominal scanning, assessment of prostate, aorta, gallstones, uterus, and pregnancy scanning.
  • As a result, we have an extensive maternity practice, participate in shared antenatal care with the hospital, offer midwife care and provide comprehensive breastfeeding support for new parents.
  • We combine ultrasound and surgical skills to find and remove contraceptive implants that get lost in people’s arms
  • We have substantial expertise in diabetes care.

‘Cormorants- North Atlantic Storm’


Medium: Oil on board
Size: 9 x 9 Inches
Price: €140 framed

Seabirds braving the storm

Often times I have seen Cormorants expertly diving for their food in all types of weather. This flock scouts and searches above the waters of Ballyconnell on Donegal Bay. They brave a nasty north Atlantic storm I remember very well on a March day. For this painting I have used oils manipulating the water with palette knife and small brushes to depict these majestic birds.

‘Cormorants- North Atlantic Storm’ is a small 9 x 9 Inch  semi- abstract oil painting by Poilin Mc Gowan. It depicts a small flock of Seabirds scouting the waters of Donegal bay in storm. These birds dive into the ocean for small fish. They can go down 45 meters using their wings (a wingspan as wide as 1.1 meter) as rudders. Cormorants are expert divers and will hunt all varieties of fish. There are so many types of different species, but these ones are typical of the North west coast of Ireland. Sometimes they are referred to as ‘Shag’ by the local fishermen and are usually a good sight to see. The name cormorant in Latin ,Corvus Marinus’ means ‘Sea Raven’. Perfect for their dark appearance!
