Video column The Chiropodist – an inside look at working life in Dublin's city centre

As part of a series of interviews with Dubliners, journalist Eoin Lynch and photographer Deirdre Brennan speak with Genevieve Kearins a chiropodist and business owner.

THE ‘DUBLINERS’ SERIES is glimpse into the lives of some of the characters living in a city where history and modernity collide on a daily basis. Told through sound and image this series brings the viewer a wide array of people who call Dublin their home.

As a young woman, Genevieve Kearins came to Dublin from Sligo. After working in Scholls of Grafton Street for a number of years Genevieve took an office on Sampsons Lane where she set up her own chiropodist practice.

Through the years Genevieve has built up a regular clientele from the Gardaí who walk the beat, to young footballers, to nurses who spend all day on their feet.
