Dayna loves the fact that she has such variety in her job, working in both the dispensary at the Market Cross pharmacy and on the shop floor, advising on beauty. Dayna, from Manorhamilton in Co Leitrim, was a qualified beautician when she came to work at Higgins Pharmacy 10 years ago. She liked the cosmetic end of working in a pharmacy but got more and more interested in the medical side of things. So much so that she trained to be a pharmacy technician with the Irish Pharmacy Union and now is an expert on all aspects of the pharmacy business.
Dayna’s Pick: Decleor skincare

If there is one person who is the face of the Market Cross pharmacy, it has to be Kay who has been there for more than 30 years – long before the Higgins family even owned it. Kay works front of house and knows all the regulars – and they know her. Kay describes herself as a jack-of-all-trades and is involved in every side of the business from buying to selling. And if you need to know anything about fragrances, cosmetics or skincare, Kay’s the expert.
Kay’s Pick: Vichy and La Roche-Posay
Connie joined the Higgins family in 2011 and has been working with the business as a pharmacy assistant ever since. Originally from Ballina, Connie enjoys travelling to Sligo for her job, working in both Market Cross and Teeling Street pharmacies. She is interested in all aspects of the job and is responsible for dispensing medicine. But like the great team she works with, patient care is important to her, and she enjoys listening to the customers and helping them with their queries.
