Warm wishes have been paid to a much-loved and popular doctor on his retirement after 50 years working in Letterkenny.
Dr James McDaid finished his last shift in Scally Medical Practice yesterday.
In a post online, Councillor Ciaran Brogan said Dr McDaid’s retirement is the ‘end of an era’.
“Wishing Dr James Mc Daid good health and happiness as he finishes his last shift in Scally medical practice today after spending 50 years working as our medical doctor in Letterkenny .
“It will be with a difficult day for James as he finishes up doing what he enjoyed best looking after his patients in the surgery, doing house calls and on the many football pitches always finding solutions and administering pain relief along the way.”
Cllr Brogan said a lot has changed in the modern era of medicine, but praised Dr McDaid for embracing challenges.
“Dr James was always willing to embrace the challenge and the change providing it was beneficial for his patients, so hopefully now gets a chance to have some good quality time for himself and his family.
“It certainly is ‘the end of an era’ for many families in the Letterkenny area as Dr James Mc Daid. So today our prescription to you is enjoy your well earned retirement because you certainly deserve every moment of it.”
