Dr Alexander Michel

I grew up in Gummersbach, a town east of Cologne, Germany. Following the Leaving Cert and Mandatory Civilian Service, I studied Medicine at the University of Greifswald, Germany, a beautiful town north of Berlin. I worked as fully qualified General Practitioner in Germany, New Zealand and Ireland.

I speak fluent English, Italian and my native tongue German. Furthermore, I have a general grasp of other languages, including French, Spanish, and Russian. My wife, children and I enjoy living in beautiful Connemara. I enjoy playing a few tunes, exploring the beautiful countryside, or tasting the local seafood.
