Conor is a co-founder of the practice with Dr. Fionnuala Loughrey in 2001, when the practice moved from the centre of Drogheda. He is a graduate of Trinity College, Dublin and moved to Drogheda in 1998, having previously worked in the UK. He is married with 5 children and is now well settled into the landscape of Drogheda and the surrounding areas. In his spare time he is a fan of many sports, although now restricting himself mainly to the golf course.
His postgraduate training in Dublin developed an interest in child health, having spent a year working in the National Children’s Hospital. He worked for 10 years in general practice in England, where he also pursued an interest in gut disorders while working with a consultant gastroenterologist. Since returning to Ireland he has completed further qualifications in Diabetes and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
For a bit of light relief, he is a closet nerd and is currently the National Co-ordinator of the GPIT (General Practice Information Technology) group of the ICGP (Irish College of General Practitioners) as well as working for the CCIO (Council of Clinical Information Officers) of eHealth Ireland.
He is a member of the ICGP and in 2015 was awarded a Fellowship of the RCGP,
