The Firhouse Team

Our Reception Team

Tara

Receptionist

Tara first joined the Firhouse team as a work experience student. We liked her so much we asked her to come and work with us! Tara has 2 dogs: Sky, a collie-terrier cross and mischief maker, and Ruby, a shy jack russell terrier.

Grace

Receptionist

Grace joined our team in 2016. Grace is a veterinary nursing student and works with us part time. She currently spends much of her spare time studying! Grace has one dog, a beagle named Bam.

Our Vets

Nuala

Vet

Nuala joined the practice in 2008, having graduated from UCD in 2002. After qualifying she worked in Ireland and the UK before moving closer to home in 2008. Since childhood Nuala has had a wide variety of pets- from mice and gerbils to guinea pigs and dogs!

Currently she is the proud owner of a toy poodle called Pete, who likes to keep his hair long and natural!

Rebecca

Vet

Rebecca is originally from Rathfarnham and qualified as a vet in University College Dublin. We were lucky when she agreed to join our team in August 2013.

She lives in Dublin with her husband, a beautiful golden retriever called Lily and a large grey cat called Manolo!

Clare

Vet

Clare graduated from University College Dublin in 2013 and started her career in the UK gaining valuable experience. We persuaded her to join our team in January 2015.

Clare is from Dublin and is delighted to be back home with her beloved dog, Ben and of course her family!

Niamh

Vet

Niamh graduated from University College Dublin in 2009. Since graduating Niamh has worked in a variety of small animal practices in Ireland. We were delighted when she joined our team in 2016.

Niamh has one dog, a springer spaniel called Milly. However there may be another furry addition to the family in 2017!

Our Veterinary Nurses

Lara

Veterinary Nurse

Lara joined us part time while she was studying for her nursing degree at University College Dublin. She was such a good addition we asked her to join us full time.

Lara is somewhat of a guinea pig expert, being the proud owner of four of them: Margaret, Dorris, Audrey and Gladys! She also owns an extremely handsome jack russell x pug, or a jug, called Jeremy!

Sinéad

Veterinary Nurse

Sinead has joined us while Tara is on maternity leave and has got into the swing of things very quickly at Firhouse Vets. Sinead is from Dublin and is a University College Dublin nursing graduate.

She has two dogs – Bella, a beautifully behaved cocker spaniel and Toby, a bubbly cairn terrier!

Rebecca

Veterinary Nurse

Rebecca graduated from University College Dublin in 2014. She then moved to the UK where she worked at the RSPCA. In 2016 she decided to move closer to home and joined our team.

Rebecca has two cats, Alfie and Molly. Apparently Alfie is a troublemaker!

Our Pets

On an average day at least three staff pets will be in the clinic. We love the fact that our pets can come to work with us- it is the best perk of our job ...read more

On a busy, a stressful or a sad day it is so nice to have them there to keep us all in a good mood.

Rasher is our resident cat and joined the team at Old Bawn in December 2010 – he was brought into us as a stray but when nobody wanted to re-home him we kept him and we are so glad we did! He is a friendly curious little black cat. Since moving to our Firhouse location Rasher spends his time sunning himself in by the window or playing with Pete the poodle – who is closest in size to him! He loves snoozing, being brushed and playing with pens!

Pete, Sadie and Lily are the three amigos- they come in every day their owners are working!(Nuala, Rebecca and Sophie.) They have such fun playing with their toys and curling up together for naps. They are always pooped after a day in the clinic! The rest of the staff pets visit regularly and are greeted with delight by the three amigos!
