Dungarvan pharmacist Mr Daragh Connolly has recently been elected President of Community Pharmacy Section of International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP). Extending the IPU’s congratulations, Secretary General Mr Darragh O’Loughlin said: “Daragh Connolly has been a leading figure within community pharmacy in Ireland for many years.

As a former IPU President, he is a passionate and effective advocate for the sector and we are delighted that he will be bringing his expertise to a global stage. “This is an endorsement of Daragh’s personal acumen and also reflects the high international esteem in which Irish community pharmacy is held. In a year in which Irish pharmacies have played such an important role in their communities, it’s heartening to see Irish community pharmacy having such an impact on the world stage.

“It is fitting that Daragh’s appointment has been announced as we were set to mark World Pharmacists Day, which this year focused on the theme of ‘Trust’. Public trust in Irish pharmacies has never been higher: Ipsos MRBI’s annual Veracit y Index for 2021 shows that pharmacists are now the most trusted profession among any sector in Ireland, surpassing nurses for the first time.”

Mr Connolly is a third-generation pharmacist and he qualified from the University of Portsmouth in 1997. He is the operator of Haven Pharmacy Connolly’s on Main Street, Dungarvan, which has been run by the Connolly family since 1973. Mr Connolly served as President of the Irish Pharmacy Union from 2016 until 2020.
