My Name is Darren Macfarlane and I am a Registered Physical Therapist & Sports Injury Therapist. I specialise in musclo-skeletal conditions not just for competitive sports people but for everyone who is concerned about their health and well being.

I have worked with various other GAA clubs, Rugby and Soccer clubs over the last few years.
