  1. I’m delighted to read this.
    He is a fantastic GP.
    Hope he wins.

  2. Dr Eamonn Shanahan is well deserving of this award. He looked after my parents for years and without him, I am confident they wouldn’t have lived as long and pain free. He is as knowledgeable- and more on several occasions- than numerous consultants they have come across. A true gentleman and I feel very strongly that his manner, knowledge and professionalism may finally be recognised publicly.

  3. Gina MCElligott says:

    Eamonn as Dr Shanahan is known to his patients and I am one and also my son his wife and baby. The Farranfour medical Centre with Eamonn’s team of doctors treat there patients with great respect and dignity and kindness and talk and listen to there patients not above them but beside them I could not praise them enough so thorough and professional in there medical care . Dr Eamonn Shanahan truly deserves this award a gentleman and a brilliant doctor that loves medicine and always open to learning and training
