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.

Mortgage to Rent Scheme

Mortgage To Rent Scheme


Dublin City Council has launched a pilot scheme to help homeowners at risk of losing their home due to mortgage arrears. This scheme is called the “Mortgage to Rent Scheme”.

Eligible applicants will sell their homes to Dublin City Council and rent their homes back from the Council. This means that people in serious financial difficulty can continue to live in their homes and reduce their monthly expenditure! A manageable rent will be payable to Dublin City Council – a sum which will be based on the applicant’s ability to pay. This sum will be significantly lower than the applicant’s current mortgage repayments.

Any outstanding debt due on the mortgage, after the home has been purchased by the Council, will also be repayable at a manageable level taking the applicant’s income and resources into account.

There could even be an option for applicants to buy back their homes after 5 years if their situation improves.

Some of the criteria for the Scheme are as follows:

1. You must be unable to meet your mortgage payments.

2. Your property must be in negative equity.

3. You must not own any other properties.

4. You must be living in a property with a current market value of no more than €220,000.

5. You must be eligible for Social Housing Support in Dublin City Council’s administrative area.

6. You must have a long-term right to remain in Ireland.

The Citizens Information Board is operating a Mortgage Arrears Helpline for potential applicants to the Scheme. The service is available from 9.30 am to 5 pm each day at Tel: 076 107 4050. You can also obtain further information on their website www.keepingyourhome.ie. You will need to contact the Mortgage Support Unit of Dublin City Council to find out if you qualify for the Mortgage to Rent Scheme.
