Grant’s Pharmacy was established in Wexford town over 40 years ago. The well-known pharmacy is owned by qualified pharmacist Leonie Grant who followed in the footsteps of her late father Joe Grant, the founder of the family business. When she graduated from Trinity College Dublin, Leonie returned home to Wexford to help her mum Bernie run the pharmacy. Grant’s Pharmacy began as a family venture and remains so to this day.
Leonie and her staff now operate 6 pharmacies while maintaining the independent, local family approach to healthcare. They are located in Wexford, Enniscorthy, Gorey, Arklow and Southern Cross Road in Bray. In 2022 we also launched our new online shop where we stock the best in Irish and International brands. We post to anywhere in Ireland or internationally.
Leonie with her staff, are looking forward to welcoming you to Grant’s Pharmacy for your first time or your hundredth time – we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our loyal customers for their support.
Leonie was brought up in Wexford, a stone’s throw from Wygram Nursing Home, she attended The Mercy School, St. John’s Road, Wexford, followed by Loreto Wexford. Leonie gained the highest Leaving Certificate Points in 1996 in County Wexford and received a scholarship award in Trinity College, Dublin where she studied Pharmacy. Following an honours degree graduation, Leonie trained under the Pharmaceutical Union of Ireland President, Dr. Aidan O’Shea, who later became the President of the European Pharmacy Union.
During this year, she won a National Award for a community pharmacy project undertaken which involved medication management for asylum seekers and foreign workers. This project later became the topic of a post-graduate doctorate in Trinity College where Leonie was a consultant.
In 2001 Leonie was very proud to return to Wexford to take over the family business – Grant’s Pharmacy, St. Aidan’s Shopping Centre, Wexford. She has worked there ever since building the business to the community practice that is established there today.
