ESP & Ireland


May 19, 2022, LIVE


If you are interested in the physio life of ESP alumni in Ireland, this webinar is exactly what you need! Via this webinar we aim to have alumni share their experiences and strengthen the local network of ESP alumni in Ireland! We will talk about the (CORU) registration process, the system, the position of physiotherapy, the impact of Brexit and Covid and also internship possibilities!


Abby Daly

Abby graduated from ESP in 2019 and returned to Ireland. Since graduating she has worked in private practice and with the HSE. She’s happy to chat about the internships, the CORU registration process, what it’s like working in Ireland and the pathway to gaining work with the HSE.

Cliodhna Hoey

Cliodhna returned to Ireland after 10 years of living and working in both The Netherlands and Germany. She has a special interest in the field of Women’s Health physiotherapy and loves all things pelvic floor & pregnancy-related. She also comes from an extensive background in professional Contemporary dance.
