Weather Conditions

Update  Tuesday March 6th 12.30pm

Still in the process of getting back to normal.  Back orders are still reaching us and, thankfully, the weather has got a bit milder.  There are still some issues regarding access and water shortages.  A huge thanks to all who have played their part in keeping the country going over the last week.

Update Sunday March 4th 9.30am

We will be open today from 1pm to 5pm to facillitate those who weren’t able to get out over the last few days.  Please note that roads and footpaths are still dangerous.  There is a lot of lying water and snow falling from roofs continues to be an issue.  Our phone will be manned all day.

Update Saturday March 3rd 5.00pm

We are now closed for the day.  We will update again on Sunday morning regarding any Sunday opening.

Update Saturday March 3rd 1.00pm

We are open at last.  Road conditions out there are terrible.  We repeat our advice not to travel unless in an emergency.  Please beware of falling snow from roofs.  We will be open until 5pm today and will provide further services tomorrow, Sunday.

Update Saturday March 3rd 9.50am

The pharmacy remains closed this morning.  Due to the hazardous driving conditions it is unsafe for our staff to attempt to reach the pharmacy at the moment.  If there is any improvement we will attempt to open at some stage later today.  We will also attempt to open tomorrow Sunday March 4th in order to provide some service.  Please be patient with us when reopen as we have not had full deliveries since last Tuesday and we do not know yet if deliveries will reach us on Monday.

In addition, please be aware that as the thaw begins, there is a danger of snow falling from roofs.

Please do not venture out at all unless absolutely necessary.  Please phone us at 053 914 2354 first.  Please note this number is currently diverted to a mobile number.

Update Friday March 2nd 10.15am

Fortune’s Pharmacy will remain closed today due to the extreme weather and hazardous driving conditions.  Our phone will continue to be manned.  Hopefully we will be able to provide some level of service tomorrow, Saturday.  Please check back here for updates.

Update Thursday March 1st 9.30am

The pharmacy is open this morning as normal.   A huge thanks to our wonderful staff who made it in.  With Storm Emma due to meet the Beast from the East later today, we plan to close at 2pm.  This is in the interests of the safety of our staff and customers.  Our telephone will be manned until 6pm this evening.

At the moment we plan to reopen at 2pm on Friday March 2nd.  Please note that this is weather dependent and subject to change.   Changes to this will be advised here and on our social media.  Stay safe everybody.


Wednesday February 28th

Despite the weather conditions, Fortune’s Pharmacy is open for  business as normal today, Wednesday February 2018.  Due to the changing nature of the weather, this is under constant review.  Any changes will be advised here and on our social media channels.

Advice for Patients

Please phone us before leaving your house to come in.  Do not take unnecessary risks.  Please stay warm and ensure that you eat and drink fluids.  Make sure you have a fully charged mobile phone and keep an eye on local and national media for updates.  If you are venturing out, please take care on the roads.  Try to finish any journey in daylight.  Don’t forget to check on your neighbours.
