Introduction


Blackrock Clinic has opened a Satellite centre in Monaghan, in conjunction with Dr Brendan Mac Mahon, Consultant Physician and Cardiologist. This allows patients from Monaghan and the surrounding area to access the expertise of some of Blackrock Clinic’s leading consultants.

Patients referred by a GP can now be assessed locally in Monaghan. Should a procedure be required, this will happen in Blackrock Clinic, Dublin, and subsequent follow-up consultations will take place again in Monaghan. This limits the travel required for consultations and aftercare.

The clinic is based in Old Cross Square, Monaghan Town, close to Monaghan Cathedral. The postal address is Unit 5, Teach O Cleircin, Old Cross Square, Monaghan.
