YOUR NEW VETERINARY TEAM PROVIDING LOVING CARE
VETERINARY SURGEON & FOUNDER
Michael grew up in Blackrock but spent most summers on his uncle’s farm in County Limerick where he decided he wanted to be a vet. After 5 years studying in UCD, Michael initially worked in Ireland but left after two years to travel the globe. Michael worked in the UK, France, America, New Zealand, Australia and Japan before returning to Ireland in 2003.
Michael always wanted to have his own small animal practice in Dublin and when the opportunity arose to purchase The Mews in 2015, the dream could finally be turned into a reality. Michael lives in Ranelagh with his wife Judith, their four children and Bobby the dog.
Faela grew up in Sandymount and found her passion for veterinary nursing while volunteering with the North Dublin SPCA as a teenager. She started work as a trainee veterinary nurse in a Dublin Vet clinic in 2007 and qualified from UCD in 2011 as a Veterinary Nurse. Faela left to gain further experience in England in 2014 and worked in an array of clinics over there. Her area of special interest is Emergency Critical Care and she has worked in this area since graduation. Faela came home to Dublin to take on another challenge in an environment where she could utilise her new found skills.
Faela took on a rescue cat called Pelvis Elvis in 2017. P.E. was hit by a car and fractured his pelvis. His owners elected euthanasia but Faela thought with time and plenty of care he would make a full recovery, despite his many injuries. He now lives to tell the tale and provides her with much entertainment.
