Dr Martina Hanratty first opened Castle Street Surgery in 1987 (coincidentally the same year Dr Brendan Crosbie was born) becoming the first female doctor to open a GP practice in Roscommon Town. Ever since, the vision and ambition of the practice has been to promote health, wellness and disease prevention. From the moment you arrive in our practice you become part of the tradition of our family practice.
