Walsh’s Pharmacy has been caring for families in the Ferbane area since 1944. The pharmacy on Main Street was established as a family business by Aidan’s father, Thomas P. Walsh along with the help of his then fiancée (later wife), Eithne McKnight, who was a qualified pharmacy assistant. It was a small pharmacy in a small village, but T.P. and his loyal staff built up a good business; they always made time and space for their customers.
Aidan Walsh maintained this philosophy when he took over the pharmacy in 1992, following the passing of his father. Aidan continues to run the pharmacy along with his team of local staff. Restrictions on space prompted a move to new premises in 2005, and in 2015, the pharmacy became part of the Allcare Irish Community Pharmacy network of almost 100 pharmacies.
2019 marks 75 years of service to the community around Ferbane for Aidan Walsh Allcare Pharmacy. To celebrate this anniversary, the pharmacy had a day of celebration on Friday November 15th offering refreshments and prizes, along with a 20% discount off all front of counter items. The day was a huge success with many locals turning up to show their support of Aidan Walsh and the pharmacy that has been such a focal point in their community for the past 75 years.
