Meet the Team - Clane

Maria Foy MVB

Companion Animal Vet

I love all aspects of Veterinary and working with all sizes of animals, large and small. 

I have a collie-cross springer called Jessie, she is nine years old. I am also from a suckler and sheep farm in Northern Ireland.

Niamh Fagan

Companion Animal Vet

I studied animal science in UCD (BAgrSc) and then completed a post-grad in Veterinary medicine in Slovakia (DVM).


I have a particular interest in surgery, diagnostic imaging and I also enjoy dermatology.

Unfortunately, I have no pets myself. But my favorite celebrity animal is Pumbaa from the lion king, I love pigs!

Laura Meade RVN​

Veterinary Nurse

I work as a veterinary nurse in Clane and I am interested in geriatric care, weight loss management and “small fury” care.

I have a few pets: Bub who is a very bold 4-year-old Patterdale terrier. I also have 5 cats- Peaky (the mum), Bold girl, Blackie, Crusty who is a foster kitten and Dopey.

My favourite pet animal is Doug the Pug.

Shanice Heathcote RVN

Veterinary Nurse

I am a student nurse, finalising my degree in Dundalk IT. I will be finished in May. I am a professional groomer by trade and I was working in a veterinary hospital and I decided that it was what I wanted to do.  

My favourite part about the job is seeing the turnaround of animals, really sick animals taking a great turn up. Puppies and kittens are also a nice part of the job.  

I have six dogs, they are all rescue dogs, Kiesha, TJ & Suki, Millie, Mini, and Tigger is a little terrier.
