Linda qualified from Trinity College, Dublin and has gained extensive experience in major teaching hospitals in Dublin and in Australia. Linda opened Ashbourne Physiotherapy Clinic in 1992 and Sutton Cross Physiotherapy in 2012.

She has a special interest in men’s and women’s pelvic health (treating bowel, bladder & post-prostatectomy). Linda also loves treating feet and she has over 25 years’ experience in orthotic prescription and a special interest in lower limb tendon problems.

As Linda specialises in the above areas, she usually has a waiting list of about three weeks so doesn’t deal with the more acute problems.

Linda usually works on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday in our Ashbourne clinic.

Linda plays hockey and golf and enjoys travel, cryptic crosswords, Killer Sudoku and loves penguins.
