For as long as time can remember, horses and Tipperary have been inextricably linked. As the home of some of the world’s most famous racehorses and the base for many of Ireland’s most experienced jockeys and trainers, the equestrian world is a serious business in these parts.


Having provided veterinary services to equine owners locally and across the country for over 35 years under O' Byrne and Halley, the need for A surgical clinic in the area became more evident and thus Fethard Equine Hospital (FEH), a purpose built, state of the art facility was established in 2007.  Since its inception, FEH has become a renowned specialist referral and first opinion veterinary center for horses throughout Ireland, the UK and Europe. 

We are an ever growing hospital with a large dedicated team including  4 surgeons, medicine clinician, 8 qualified veterinary surgeon interns, 8 qualified veterinary nurses and numerous devoted support staff.  O'Byrne and Halley, our ambulatory practice of FEH consists of 17 experienced ambulatory veterinary surgeons.
