“It’s time to pay back” says owner of new pharmacy in Ballon, County Carlow

It's the first business of its kind in the village

“It’s time to pay back” so says the owner of Ballon’s first pharmacy.

Fadi Almasri’s family were among the first refugees brought to Ireland from Syria by the United Nations and the Irish government.

He’d operated a pharmacy in his home country and this morning opened the doors of the local village’s new venture. (See here what a local councillor had to say about the latest offering).
