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.

Purchasing a new property is an often daunting experience. It is important that you, the purchaser, are made aware from the outset, of the common steps you are to take, in this process. At John Gaynor Solicitors we have prepared an information pack to explain the jargon and make the process clear and easy to understand.  Whilst each purchase is unique, we hope that this free pdf will give you a good idea of the steps involved.

The right to a good name and reputation is a long-established legal principle and is protected by Article 40.3.2 of the Irish Constitution. However, with the advent of social media, we discuss what your rights are and the issues that such technology poses.   WHAT IS DEFAMATION? The Defamation Act 2009 provides the bulk of defamation law in Ireland. The Act defines a defamatory statement as one which injures a person’s reputation in the eyes of reasonable people. The Act also stipulates that to successfully prove defamation, one must be shown that the defamatory statement: was published; referred to the person alleging defamation; and was false.   Defamation applies to all forms of communication – be it in print or verbal. It also covers all forms of online communication, including Facebook posts or comments, tweets, Snapchat posts, blog posts or comments, or reviews on platforms such as Google, TripAdvisor and

What is Wardship? Wardship is a type of application that can be made to the High Court if a person becomes mentally incapacitated, meaning that they can no longer make decisions for themselves because they have lost the ability to do so by illness or otherwise, and the only option open to the family is to apply to the High Court to make the person a Ward of Court. Making someone a Ward of Court is usually the last resort and therefore we would like to answer all of your questions so you can make an informed legal decision to help your loved ones. The Wardship procedure is complex but the end result is that a ‘Committee’, usually made up of family members, is appointed to deal with a person’s affairs and the person is declared to be a ‘Ward of Court’. The purpose of Wardship is to protect the

It is reported that the Revenue Commissioners have decided not to appeal a High Court judgment that allows people to claim dwellinghouse relief even if they inherit more than one property as part of a Deceased’s Estate.   However, one should be aware of the specific circumstances in which this relief remains and that is where the person claiming the relief must not have owned even a share in another property at the date of inheritance.   It is a matter of timing and in the particular case in question, the person seeking relief had received a specific bequest of the dwellinghouse for which relief was claimed, but received other properties in what is called the residue or remainder of the Estate and this was deemed to be a gift at a time later than the initial gift of the dwellinghouse.   Nevertheless, this decision could be of great benefit to

A relatively new system of buying and selling property is to be introduced on 1st January 2019 (PCIT – pre-contract investigation of title). Now the sellers’ Solicitors should make full disclosure when furnishing Contracts for Sale, so that in addition to furnishing the legal title to the property for sale, they will now be answering all the standard questions (Requisitions on Title), at the same time as furnishing the Contracts and Title. This will hopefully quicken the process in that all issues that might relate to a property for sale, will be dealt with at the beginning of the transaction rather than piecemeal as now frequently occurs. It will probably move our property system closer to that of the English one, in that following the execution of the Contracts or binding agreements for the buying and selling of the property, the actual completion takes place shortly thereafter. Sellers of

The Assisted Decision-Making Capacity Act 2015 The Act was signed into law on the 30/12/2015 and will commence in a phased process. The act will fundamentally change the way decisions are made by or for the most vulnerable members of society. It will allow an individual to determine his or her health treatment in the event he or she loses capacity to make their own recessions in the future. The act will have huge implications in relation to a person's capacity now or in the future and it will also have an impact on the healthcare and financial sectors. Key features of the act: The abolition of Wardship and the affirmation of a functional approach to capacity i.e. Individual capacity being assessed on basis of their ability to understand issues at the time the decision is made. A new regime to the 2015 Enduring Power of Attorney Act (see previous Article on

Mortgage Banks are now offering lower interest, longer fixed rate mortgages for customers. KBC have announced that they are issuing a new market leading 10 year fixed mortgage which would provide better value and certainty for customers in the long term. Unfortunately it may not be of great benefit to First Time Buyers as the loan to value ratio must be less than 60% to fix interest rates at 2.95% for 10 years. New rates come into effect on October 2nd 2017 and will be available to both existing and new mortgage customers.  Customers switching to KBC will benefit from a €3,000 contribution towards their costs, so in effect the conveyancing costs on a transfer of mortgage should cost nothing. This contribution is open to any customer who draws down their mortgage by the end of 2017.  AIB also recently announced a series of rate cuts. The environment for lower interest rates
