GP Care in Clonmel since 1978

November 2023 News

Flu & Covid Vaccination Campaign:  The flu & covid autumn vaccination campaign is well underway and we are running vaccination clinics each week.  Everyone aged 65 or older should get a Flu-vaccine as should anyone age 18-64 who has a chronic illness.  Everyone aged 50 or older is eligible for a Covid booster.   

Under 8’s GP Visit Card:  If you are the parent / guardian of a 6 or 7 year-old child, you can now register for a free GP visit card for access to free GP care.  Application can be made online at Under 8s GP visit card –

Free Contraception Scheme:  This scheme is currently available to all of our patients, aged 17-30 inclusive.  It entitles the patient to free GP consultation and procedures relating to contraception and also to free contraceptives with a prescription at your pharmacy.  

COVID NEWS:  If you are in the small minority of our patients who have not yet had any vaccination against Covid, please consider getting vaccinated. It will not only protect you but also the more vulnerable in our society.  Visit for more information.

There has been an increase in the number of covid cases again in the past few weeks.  If you are unwell with respiratory symptoms (cough, cold etc.) please stay at home and do a covid antigen test.

Finally:  We are back to normal service in the surgery at this point and most of our consultations are face-to-face again which is wonderful.  We would, however, ask patients to be considerate of our administrative, medical and nursing staff and not attend the surgery without a phone call if you have any respiratory symptoms at all.  Carrying out an antigen test before attending is something that many patients have been doing and we greatly appreciate these efforts.

Welcome to Gladstone Street Surgery

Our history

In January 1978, Dr Richard Quirke opened the doors of Gladstone Street Surgery. A single handed GP for many years, he was joined in 2000 by Dr Mike Quirke and a short time later by Dr Tara Dillon. The range of services at GSS expanded over the years and other GP assistants have worked with us through this time. For a number of years now GSS has been a GP training practice attached to the South Eastern GP Training programme. Dr Richard retired in 2016.

Our ethos

This is a modern GP practice offering a complete range of services. Through our doctors and our practice nurses we offer illness and disease management as well as a large range of screening tests and therapeutic procedures. General Practice has evolved over the decades from an illness-based service to one in which health promotion and wellbeing are a core principle of healthcare. All current therapies and procedures are carried out at GSS and referral made to appropriate hospital specialists where necessary.
