When we began looking at locations to open a third clinic, Edenderry was an obvious choice. I will personally be working across the Edenderry and Kildare clinics and I am really looking forward to meeting the local people and ensuring that all of their physiotherapy needs are met. We support a lot of sports teams through our clinics and are excited about offering our expertise to the local sports clubs and teams in the Offaly area.”
