RJS Pharmacy is the new kid on the block when it comes to businesses in Drumshanbo. There can be no doubt that Drumshanbo is really beginning to grow and thrive we here in RJS Pharmacy are delighted to be a part of it.
This is our first pharmacy and we our overwhelmed with the welcome that we have received from everyone.
For those few who haven’t been in to see us yet you are probably wondering who ‘we’ are. Well there are two of us who have been friends for nearly 20 years meeting way back as innocent 12 year olds in St Michael’s college, Enniskillen and continued on to Queen’s University, Belfast before learning our trade around the country for a few years and now here we are business partners. One part of the duo Ryan Jones better known for being a formidable midfielder for his club Derrygonnelly Harps and his county Fermanagh. In fact there have been a few offers already from the local clubs trying to get his name on their books.
The other part of this duo is John Slowey who some of you may notice from your screens when he was awarded the Rose of Tralee Escort of the Year in 2016 and in fact in that year recorded a charity music single for Crumlin’s Children’s Hospital with Drumshanbo’s very own Leo Logan.
So, the link to this town started way before RJS Pharmacy opened it’s doors in December gone by. Our initials is where the name RJS comes from, RJ – Ryan Jones and JS – John Slowey.
People often ask us how we ended up in Drumshanbo. Luck plays a big part, Ryan worked in Mohill for the last few years and had to take a diversion home via Drumshanbo one evening and John having been in Drumshanbo numerous times, we actually had a phone call about two years ago and randomly talked about Drumshanbo and both agreed that there was room for another pharmacy in Drumshanbo.
So, next thing we knew we were sitting across from Karol and Oliver Scollan in the restaurant of their Gala and 12 months later we opened our doors. The help from the Scollans’ has been incredible and we thank them for all they have done so far to help us two rookies out.
We hope we can bring great service to Drumshanbo and all it’s surrounding areas for many years to come. We cater for all for everyone whether it be a prescription or a gift for any occasion you need we have it.
RJS Pharmacy offers not only the full range of vitamins, Baby care, first aid and OTC medicines but also offers for range of personalized care such as blood pressure checking, Body fat measurements, Body mass index checking and nutrition advice all in the privacy of our spacious consultation room.
Ryan having gained a vast amount of experience in his 12 years of county football working with some of Ireland’s top nutritionists and recently complete a two year course in Setanta College Tipperary.
Recently we have opened our 1st floor Giftware and Home Furnishing Department which has been a great addition to Drumshanbo.
We are here to help and are delighted to be here in the heart of Drumshanbo in Scollan’s Gala along with Pascal in the post office to offer an expert level in healthcare and much much more.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us so far and we look forward to serving this community for many years to come.
