When Pat O’Donoghue took over the family practice in 1973, he set about building a business that would become an integral part of the local community. Since then he has gained respect in the optical community as one of the leading optometrists in the country. A graduate of DIT, Pat continues to invest in his education as well as the business, which he extensively expanded and updated in 2007 with the relocation to Scott’s Street.
Derry began work as an apprentice back when Pat first started the business and has been an integral member of the team ever since, glazing, assembling and repairing spectacles. His knowledge and efficiency allows us to dispense within the hour and he has been vital in many glass-breakage emergencies!
