LOCAL pharmacist Siobhan O’Reilly hopes to help those experiencing mental health issues as she takes over as the new President of The Rotary Club of Enniskillen. 
Ms O’Reilly succeeded retired senior road engineer Henry Robinson at the Rotary Club’s AGM on Monday. 
Originally from Maguiresbridge, she is a daughter of the late Dr Cormac Reilly, who was the local GP there, and his wife Joan, now 98, and a sister of Grainne, Philip, Cormac and Monsignor Peter.  
A former pupil of Mount Lourdes Grammar School, she obtained a Pharmacy degree at Queen’s University in Belfast and later worked for Boots before returning home to Fermanagh where she bought Tempo Pharmacy in 1984.  
Siobhan joined the Rotary Club of Enniskillen in 2005, alongside Jenny McCrea and Lily Nixon. 
She was one of the first three female members to be introduced, having been nominated by fellow pharmacist, Herby Follis. 
This is Siobhan’s first time in the role of Rotary President and her chosen charity for the coming year is the Aisling Centre which assists with the recovery of adults experiencing mental ill health and who are keen to progress towards further education/training or employment. 
The centre is the only one of its kind in this county and relies solely on volunteers and fundraising to support 500 people a week and 5,000 a year. 
Siobhan says she is looking forward to her challenging yet daunting year ahead. 
“The actual weight of the chain of office is heavy and I am very aware of the weight of responsibility that comes with this job.
“The Enniskillen Club has a standard of service to the community, of which we are an integral part, and I look forward to steering our members to continue that work,” she said.
