Following his graduation from UCD IN 1987 Manus spent 4 years in a mixed Veterinary practice in the UK before returning to Ireland in 1991. Since the establishment of Castle Vets in 1995 Manus has grown it into a large, modern practice by remaining true to his core principle of ensuring the highest levels of care for our patients. Key to his philosophy is a deep understanding of the relationship of our patients with their owners and families, having two children and a number of pets of his own. When not attending clients Manus is an avid sports fan.
