Pat Daly, (MVB, MRCVS)

Pat qualified from the University of Dublin in 1987. Pat joined Swanspool straight after qualifying with a view to returning to Ireland after 2 years! (enought time he thought to save up for a car and repay his student loan). He soon realised what a great job he had and has been a partner in the practice since 1995.A combination of a busy job and a young family means that his scuba diving, travelling and salmon fishing have had to take a back seat for now.
