About Us

Cox’s Pharmacy is Leitrim’s number one provider of pharmacy services since 1978. We have two locations:


Cox’s Pharmacy is an independent family run pharmacy located in Carrick-on-Shannon, Co. Leitrim. It was set up by Des and Margaret Cox who met whilst studying pharmacy together in UCD. Margaret who originates from Dunmanway, West Cork married Des in 1971. Together in 1978 they steadily built up the family business in Des’s native town, caring for the people of Carrick-on-Shannon and surrounding areas for the following 20 years.

Today the pharmacy is run by Maragret and her son Fintan who qualified as a pharmacist from Trinity in 1999. After the untimely death of his father Des in 2000, Fintan returned to Carrick-on-Shannon to help run the pharmacy business with his mother. Since then Cox’s Pharmacy have continued to provide a quality professional service to their customers. In 2003 Cox’s Pharmacy undertook to redevelop and modernise their Bridge Street premises, into the fine shop that you see today. They continued to improve the service they provided, by opening a second pharmacy in 2006 to coincide with the opening of the new medical centre.

Over the years they have never been shy of taking the next step to meet the needs of their ever expanding customer base. With that in mind the next natural progress is to provide the facility for their customers to buy our products conveniently online.
