Pat Daly, (MVB, MRCVS)

(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.
