Our Blanchardstown Team

Charlotte Bagnall
Veterinary Nurse
Charlotte graduated from UCD Dublin with a degree in Veterinary Nursing in June 2019 and then
quickly went on to join the Anicare team in September of the same year. In the meantime, she also
completed an equine nursing internship in UCD Veterinary Hospital throughout the summer of 2019.
Charlotte knew from a young age that she always wanted to work with animals as she grew up
surrounded by them living on a farm.
Charlotte’s passion lies with small animal practice and loves the nursing aspect of the job. She loves
to be hands on with all our patients, ensuring they all feel comfortable and happy throughout their
time with us.
Charlotte has 3 cats at home, Louis, LuLu and Phoebe. She rescued Phoebe as a kitten as she was
found in a puddle all by herself. She is now spoilt with plenty of cuddles.
Outside of Anicare, Charlotte’s favourite past time would be horse riding. Unfortunately busy
college life meant that horse riding took a back seat but she is keen to dive back in!
Erina Sweeney
Veterinary Nurse
Erina joined our Anicare team in 2019 after graduating from UCD as a Registered Veterinary Nurse. Erina, who is originally from Co. Mayo, knew from a young age she wanted to work with animals after growing up surrounded by them and was delighted when she found the perfect job to do just that. During Erina's four years studying, she gained experience in both small and large animal nursing, but after spending her final year of studying working within UCD veterinary hospital she realised small animal was where she wanted to work. Erina loves getting to help and work with animals everyday and loves the variety within the job.
Aoife Garland
Veterinary Nurse
Aoife qualified from UCD in 2019 as a Veterinary Nurse. She grew up in Malahide, Dublin
and always had a keen interest in animal care. As a student, Aoife completed her third year
placement with us in Anicare and during that time discovered a huge love for small animal
nursing. The following year, Aoife returned to Anicare to work part-time while she
completed her training. In 2019, Aoife joined us full time as a Registered Veterinary Nurse!
Growing up in Dublin, she didn’t have much experience in large animal care but gained
plenty of experience in both small and large animal nursing throughout her training.
Ultimately, following her experience with Anicare, Aoife decided that small animal nursing
was what she was passionate about. She can’t wait to grow as a Veterinary Nurse and gain as
much experience and knowledge while working with us at Anicare.
A lot of her love for small animal nursing comes from looking after her own cat, Kai. Aoife
loves taking care of him and he is now a regular with Anicare as he completes his weight loss
journey with Aoife and all our staff!
Fintan Browne
MVB (Veterinary Surgeon)
Fintan Browne graduated from UCD in 1996. He spent a year working in a mixed practice in Dublin before moving to a busy farm animal practice for another year. An exciting part of his career, Fintan got to use all of the elements of his veterinary education to treat a wide range of farm animal species in the beautiful mountains and valleys of South Tipperary.

He still remembers with fondness the easy hospitality of his farmer clients, and the laid-back wisdom of his pipe-smoking boss, Toby Moran. However, he felt his native city calling so he returned to Dublin. He joined Anicare in 1998 and has been with the practice ever since.

Fintan is a committed general practitioner with a keen interest in surgery and dermatology, and an enthusiasm for all areas of companion animal practice. He has a particular interest in the neurological diseases that affect Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and has worked with clients from as far afield as Cavan and Wicklow on these challenging cases. He is also committed to lifelong learning and attends many Continuing Veterinary Education courses to further his skills in a wide range of areas. It is his engagement with continuing education that led to his involvement with Veterinary Ireland, the veterinary profession’s representative body in Ireland.

Fintan has been the chairperson of VICAS (the Veterinary Ireland Companion Animal Society), sat on the Board of Directors of Veterinary Ireland and was a member of the National Council of Veterinary Ireland, and was also on the veterinary nursing sub-committee of the Veterinary Council of Ireland, the profession’s regulatory body. Fintan was also on the local organising committee that is bringing the FECAVA (Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations) 2013 Eurocongress to Dublin.

Fintan has been involved with the Blanchardstown Veterinary Hospital since its early planning stages back in 2006. Converting a suburban dwelling into an effective veterinary hospital was a challenge that he relished and he worked closely with the architect to create a safe and welcoming environment for clients and their pets. Fintan continually works to optimize the layout of the practice to best meet the different needs of the pets that we care for. His commitment to this is evident from the moment you step inside the front door.

When he is not working, Fintan enjoys spending time with his young family and their pet dogs Poppy (who was rehomed from Dog’s Trust in January 2011) and Pip. He has an interest in computers (especially Linux and all things open source), photography, art and design, music, popular science and good coffee.
Stephanie Lambert
Registered Veterinary Nurse
Stephanie was born and reared in Blanchardstown.  She began her veterinary nursing career by undertaking a course in Killester College, Dublin.  It was here that she combined her love for animals with a wealth of knowledge across different areas. She began working in Blanchardstown Veterinary Hospital when it first opened in 2005 and has been there ever since.

Stephanie is on a first name basis with almost all of our clients and patients.  She has been known to foster kittens, puppies, wild birds and even hedgehogs. This is how she obtained her three-legged cat Paddy, who also helps when socialising foster kittens.

In her spare time Stephanie enjoys a good book, a great gig and catching up on her fitness with kickboxing.  She is currently a blue belt and looking forward to reaching her purple belt.
Elaine Reilly
Registered Veterinary Nurse
Elaine graduated with a certificate in Equine Studies and Business Management in 2002. From there she started her own business with her best friend breaking and training young horses.

Elaine was offered a grooming position with the Irish show jumping team in 2004. This gave her the opportunity to travel Europe to Nations Cup shows while doing what she loves, caring for animals.

In 2009 Elaine returned to college to study Veterinary Nursing and in 2012 she graduated with her degree from Athlone Institute of Technology. Elaine began working for Anicare Veterinary group in March 2013, six months after the birth of her daughter Caitlin. She really enjoys meeting new people and their furry friends, caring for sick or injured animals and guiding clients through any concerns they may have.

Victoria Conroy
Registered Veterinary Nurse RVN
Victoria graduated from UCD Dublin with a degree in Animal Science in 2011. Following a change of heart in her choice of career she went back to college in 2013 to study Veterinary Nursing in the Athlone Institute of Technology graduating top of her class in 2015 and awarded The Veterinary Council of Irelands Graduate of the Year Award.

She is no stranger to Anicare having completed Professional Work experience on three occasions and the practice can probably take credit for Victoria’s love of animals and for leading her down her career path as she also did her Transition Year work experience here when in Secondary school.

As a child Victoria rescued a stray kitten from under a bush and 15 years later Misty is still with us, Victoria is also the proud owner of a Persian cat and two rabbits and a dwarf hamster.

Victoria is looking forward to working with the Staff and Clients of Anicare for many years to come.

Erin is the proud owner of a tripod rabbit, Malcom, who unfortunately had to have his leg removed after an accident when he was a baby. She enjoys watching movies snuggled up with Malcolm on her lap.
