Podiatrists hold ‘summit’ in Sligo


Over 200 people arrived in Sligo last Friday for the Firefly Summit which is a gathering of podiatrists from across Europe.

Podiatry is the study and diagnosis of disorders with the lower parts of the body, such as feet and ankles.

The event was a success with delegates being taken out and about to see what Sligo has to offer with activities such as surfing, golfing and hiking.

The conference is organised by Sligo based Firefly Orthoses, who have previously held them in London, but says that due to Brexit, they needed to move.

Instead of not hosting the conference at all, they decided to host it in Sligo.
