I graduated from UCD Vet College in 1982. I am a practicing vet partner in Comeragh Veterinary, a mixed, mainly dairy cattle practice, based in Kilmacthomas, Co. Waterford.
Completing the Certificate in Dairy Herd Health in 2015 revived my interest in Bovine Preventive Medicine.
The management and control of Bovine Lameness is a field of particular interest to me and I have delivered many courses to both vets and farmers on this and related topics.
