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.

Glencar Shower

I’ve been looking at a lot of Contemporary Artist’s work lately. One of these is Scottish Artist Peter Doig. He paints the environment around him, particularly the countryside, the architecture and sometimes the people within that environment. This is what led me to paint Glencar Shower.

Wherever Doig goes he takes photos and brings them back to his studio and paints his way. Often he would work in a representational style, using strange colours in an abstract sense to create a dreamlike nostalgic painting. It could be a boat on a lake, such as a canoe, an architectural cabin in the woods or quite simply a person looking into a pool in a snow scene. One of his most well known paintings ‘Pelican (Stag)’ 2003, caught my interest. This portrays a man walking into a tropical waterfall.

I actually happened to be at Glencar Waterfall in County Leitrim with my family. We were just out for a drive last October and stopped by there. It’s really beautiful there, it never fails to amaze me in any season.

That day was chilly and we were quite surprised to see a group of men taking most of their clothes off and head towards the Waterfall. These guys looked like they were ticking off a piece of their bucket list. Sure enough, under the water they ventured messing about like schoolboys. I said to them they were crazy! There was no way you’d get me doing that!..But hey, I don’t like any amount of cold! I took the opportunity to take some snaps, as I’m always on the lookout for imagery to inspire my painting. And I thought, yeah I want to paint that. A glimpse of a moment of COLD, rigidity and accomplishment whilst probably thinking of a heated blanket!

I did it the way I wanted to portray them, studying the figures, their movement and their interaction with their surroundings. It’s certainly a different climate away from Doig’s tropical Tobago Waterfall paintings, just a similar subject. The notion of capturing an experience like this in Ireland’s autumnal climate in Leitrim!
