The clinic invested €3 million in the expansion and says it will see further recruitment in the coming months.

The company started 1997 and is now Ireland’s largest private fertility treatment unit with headquarters at Clonskeagh, Dublin.

Co-founder and CEO, Doctor David Walsh said, “World Health Organisation statistics for Ireland show that one in five people here have fertility issues.

In fact, we have the highest infertility rate in Europe, largely due to pregnancy being delayed until relatively late in life.

Treatments include IVF, sperm donation, donor egg treatment, reproductive immunology, and EEVA, the Early Embryo Viability Assessment test.
