The Athenry Surgery Medical Practice was founded in 1983 by Doctors Michael McGloin and Bridget Keane. Following 30 years of care to the Athenry Community from their previous locations beside the historic arch tower entrance to the Village and Caheroyn, they along with their partner GPs, Drs Ian O’Connor and David Meehan designed and developed the Athenry Primary Care Centre. The Centre and the new Surgery opened on 22nd July 2013.
At the time of development, The Surgery’s incorporation within the Primary Care Centre was designed to provide a one stop location for the Athenry community to service all their healthcare requirements. Since opening its doors in 2013, the Primary Care Centre and indeed the practice has grown each year. This is testament to our patients’ approval of such a facility and the hard work and dedication of the various teams working within the Centre, be it for The Surgery, the HSE or other. Please note: The Surgery is a separate entity within the Centre and we work closely with all other service providers operating from Athenry Primary Care Centre as listed below:
