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.

About the Painting

Waiting for Edward is a painting that was inspired by the North American Artist Edward Hopper. I am very much inspired by past artists like Hopper . It is such a pleasure to learn from them. Through my painting I try to incorporate a bit of their style or subject matter. I picked Hopper because of his vast and beautiful compositions in their environments. I especially love the stillness in the narrative he portrays of people, it just fascinates me. If you like people watching, you’ll know what I mean! And this is what his paintings look like, every day people doing what they’re doing. The mundane ordinary things.

In case you don’t know who Hopper is, I’ve put an interesting article HERE for you to browse through. I will explain a little here for you… Edward Hopper was a famous Artist who was active in his paintings throughout the 1930’s and 40’s in New York and New England. During this time he painted ordinary people in the loneliness of their own surroundings – rural and urban.

His paintings are painted in such an ethereal way, the light illuminates the ordinary. Looking at his work captivates me, as the impressionists used light in their paintings to give life to their subjects.  The sheer loneliness of the human being is often reflected in Hopper’s paintings, often there is just one person in his paintings. Here in my painting I wanted to convey this feeling of isolation in this woman’s stark environment. She is solitary, looking out into a vast ocean. Almost like a scene in one of those Hollywood films. I imagine she is yearning for a connection, perhaps she is thinking of someone. Or perhaps waiting for someone special to come along and sweep her off her feet, who knows?!

I am driven by what excites me. Hopper’s paintings do that for me.  ‘Morning Sun’ is a painting that inspired me to paint ‘Waiting for Edward’. It is a very similar environment or scene to this painting. Click HERE to view and you’ll see what I mean.
