Our Oakpark Pharmacy
Established in 1990, Leahys Pharmacy has been serving the people of Tralee for over 20 years now. Originally set up by Mary Leahy, it was taken over by local Oakpark girl Claire Cronin in 2004. Claire returned to her roots having worked for Mary Leahy in Leahys Pharmacy from 1998 to 2000.
Here at Leahys we were the first pharmacy in Tralee to offer our customers a later evening service by opening until 7pm in the evening and have continued to provide this service to our customers throughout the years.
At Leahys Pharmacy our aim is to provide excellent clinical pharmacy service to all our customers – to that end we have three pharmacists working in-store to ensure that the clinical care you require is always available to you. Our pharmacists have a combined experience of over 50 years – this wealth of experience means that when you need us we are always able to respond with the best advice based on our vast knowledge.
