Trainer / Trainee Forum 2017

GP Practice Trainer, Dr David Buckley and Trainee, Dr Tom Kennedy organised a bowling evening on 30th November 2016.  Our bowling talents were tested with some very impressive results along with some questionable moves!

It was a great night and an excellent opportunity for practice trainers and trainees to meet following the allocation of training practices for the 2017/2018 training year.

We look forward to next year's forum already, the bar has been set high.

Start of Year Walk 2016

Each training year begins with a walk and this year, after a slight posponement, we ventured up Torc.  The weather gods were kind to us and we had some lovely views over the lakes of Killarney.  The walk was followed by well earned food in La Rambla.

Thanks to Patrick Scollard for organising a great afternoon.

Fully Trained and Battle Ready

End of term personal development day 2016 - this is what can happen.

Thanks to Noel and David for orgainsing an excellent day at Killarney High Ropes.  A great team building day.
