Dr Máire Finn

GP, Educator and Broadcaster

Dr Máire Finn graduated from NUIG in 1993 and achieved her MICGP in 1998.

She has worked as a principal General Practitioner in Ennis since that time. She has an active role in all levels of medical education and mentorship, taking students and interns from UL and RCSI.

In 2006 she became one of the only female trainers on the Midwest GP training scheme.

She is a proud START doctor since it’s inception.

She recently formalised the menopause care she has always provided by starting a specialty clinic in her surgery.  This has allowed her to train and mentor other GPs in menopause care.

When settled into her practice in Ennis she was afforded the opportunity to develop her passions for women’s and family health.  She found that a patient’s needs could only be truly met with time, listening and compassion.

Since 2002 she has become the voice of medicine and health advocacy in the mid-west.

RTE offered an opportunity to expand her reach in 2018, a hugely successful move for Máire who is now a regular medical contributor on radio and TV principally Today with Claire Byrne and the Today Show on RTE 1

Máire has published several articles both scholarly and opinion pieces.

She has always been an advocate for better access to healthcare and inclusivity in all aspects of life.
