It's been a spec-tacular 5 years!
The Specsavers opticians store in Naas, Co. Kildare is celebrating a spectacular anniversary on the 4th of October as the store is 5 years in business this year. Specsavers first opened its doors in September 2008 and has been proudly serving the people of Naas since then.

Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin
Specsavers Naas is no stranger to raising funds for charity. Over the five years, the store has raised much needed funds for Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind and most recently, Specsavers Ireland’s national charity partner– Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin. To date the store has raised over €500 for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin and recently held a charity static cycle to raise funds for the hospital, with plans now in gear to host another cycle in the coming months.
In addition to the store’s fundraising efforts, the staff at Specsavers Naas are committed to the ongoing support of the Irish Book Awards and Vision Aid Overseas, with store director Labhaoise McGrane having visited Africa twice volunteering for this great cause.
