Shopping for bargains at Tierney's

Healthwise Pharmacies – Caring for Your Community

“To mark this special occasion we have some fantastic reductions – while stocks last…” Liam Grimley

"Healthwise an Irish owned pharmacy group and is totally committed to supporting Irish owned manufacturers and distributors"

Walking into Tierney’s new, well-designed pharmacy, on the high street in Buncrana, you know that the layout has got the customer in mind. All of the fully stocked shelves are brimming with top brand-name products to keep you healthy and beautiful. Today the staff are buzzing with excitement as Mrs Brigid Tierney has officially opened the brand new premises at 9:30 this morning (Tuesday).

“Brigid Tierney’s husband, Eamon, owned the shop for years. He originally started work here in the early 1960’s and moved us to this site from the original shop across the road, way back in 1983,” says Liam Grimley, the current owner. “We thought it would be fitting to ask Brigid to cut the ribbon as she has been connected with the company since it started. Their daughter Siobhan works in the shop too so the associations are still very strong.”


Marie Gately has a strong relationship with the shop too. She is the longest serving member of staff, having been with the company for 36 years now, “and counting”- as she says. “We keep them a long time here.” Liam jokes.


Tierney’s are part of the Irish owned, Healthwise Pharmacy group and the Head Office is now in the new building in Buncrana. Liam is one of the directors. “There are 14 shops in the North West under the Healthwise name. We employ over 100 people in the local area and are committed to giving the best value and service to customers in Donegal.” Liam says proudly.


“We would all like to thank our customers for being so patient with us whilst this building work has been going on.” Liam says. “Our long suffering neighbours deserve a big thank you, as they have had to put up with a cloud of dust for months. You can see though, that it has all been well worth it and we look forward to seeing everyone here soon to snap up the special opening bargains”.
