John O’Connell is a third generation pharmacist from Kilkenny City. John’s grandfather (and namesake) opened the premises, in which he now works, in Rose Inn Street in 1945. His father Michael set up shop in Haven Pharmacy O’Connell’s High Street just over 20 years later. John continues to serve and care for the people of Kilkenny since he began working in his grandfather’s Rose Inn Street shop in 1995.
Allison Hyland is a native of county Kilkenny and began working in Haven Pharmacy O’Connell’s High Street shop five years ago, when Michael O’Connell retired after 45 years of serving the people of Kilkenny. Pharmacy Assistant Marguerite Walsh who previous to Allison’s arrival worked with Michael for 30 years, supports Allison.
