Meet the Team

Eamonn Murphy
Optical Technician

Eamonn joined our practice in 2003 and has been working in the optical industry for 30 years. His role involves glazing spectacles, ordering patients’ lenses and ensuring our lab is stocked with all of the necessary equipment we need to deliver top quality eyewear.

Something that Eamonn particularly enjoys about his role is the fact that every day is different; no two pairs of eyes are the same, and no two days in practice are either.

Outside of work Eamonn enjoys reading, quizzing and various sporting activities.

As a member of our front of house team, Siobhan can often be found meeting and greeting our patients. Her other roles include booking appointments, ordering stock and general administrative duties. And as well as providing expertise on reception, Siobhan also offers her skills and expertise to patients who require help making eyewear selections.

When asked what she likes most about her role Siobhan says, “Dealing with the patients. I like meeting new people and making them happy, especially when it comes to recommending eyewear. I’m also fortunate enough to work with a great team of individuals”.

When she’s not working Siobhan likes to read, cook, eat out, spend time with her family and occasionally visit the theatre.

Receptionist & lens expert

Aoife is a member of our front of house team and spends the majority of her time welcoming our patients to the practice. However, she has a number of other roles within the practice such as dispensing eyewear, making small adjustments to spectacles and helping patients with their frame selections.

Aoife likes spending her time getting to know lots of different people, and generally making patients happy with their new eyewear.

Angela enjoys a number of aspects of her role and says, “I like meeting people and helping to assess and satisfy their individual needs. I enjoy advising about ocular health and working as part of a friendly, professional team.”

Mary Berry
Optical Assistant & Lab Technician

Mary’s time in practice is split between working front of house, greeting patients, advising them about lens choices and helping them select great looking eyewear. The other half of her time is spent in our lab glazing spectacle lenses and making general repairs to eyewear.

As well as meeting patients and aiding their search for the perfect frames, Mary particularly enjoys meeting with our reps and picking out new stock.

Outside of work Mary likes going for walks and watching GAA matches. She also likes baking and spending time with her family.

Regina Duggan
Owner & Principle Optometrist

Regina developed an interest in the optical profession during her teenage years. As a spectacle wearer she spent a lot of time going back and forth to the opticians and became increasingly interested in how lenses can alter and correct your vision.

After qualifying in 1986 Regina was delighted to set up her own practice in her home town of Wexford in 1992, and has loved seeing happy satisfied patients ever since!

Outside of work Regina has a very active lifestyle, enjoying sailing and cycling, and travelling abroad to experience different cultures, and of course trying the local food and wine.
