Tell me a little about yourself and what you do…
My name is Peter O Dwyer, based in Cashel Co. Tipperary I own a medical footwear and comfort shoe shop under my own name. I help people take care of their feet by equipping them with specially designed footwear. I stock Hartjes handmade shoes and Ganter Shoes among other brands.
Q1 -How did you come up with the concept and name for your business?
I have 40 years of retail in this business. I believe in the personal touch, that is why I kept my name overhead the shop door and when my customers come into the shop they meet me and my staff personally.
I stock shoes that are suitable for all different type of conditions as there are few stockists of such shoes for people who have conditions such as Diabetics, Hammered toes, Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spur, Claw Toe, people that suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Gout. I would like to stress the importance of monitoring your feet and getting suitable shoes as when you have a medical condition as above it can be challenging.
To give you an example, the following are a requirement of a Diabetic shoe…
- Pessure point presentation.
- Steady rolling movement – a natural step movement minimising the danger of the foot being caught and pushing against something or twisting the ankle.
- Wide, soft and Flexible – A wide toe cap offers enough room for the foot.
Q2 – What motivates you to be creative?
I always believe customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance. Feet are an integral part of one’s everyday life. With 40 years of experience, I love the way the shoe designs have developed, with fab colours introduced to go with the season whilst still keeping the comfort. Currently, people are embracing outdoor life, and looking for comfort in their footwear, I really enjoy my job finding the right shoes for the right person.

Q3 – Nature is something that inspires me massively, how would you say that this relates to you?
The manufactures of our shoes have embraced nature, with the materials they use, eg. washable insoles provided, leather, vibrant colours that reflect the seasons. I try and use natural products every day in my life.
Running a business in Cashel with its imposing Rock of Cashel and the rich agricultural land of the Golden Vale, one feels blessed to be surrounded by such beauty.
Q4 – When did you start using Forever Living’s natural products?
I came across Forever Living products approx 2 years, when I read an article Anita had written in a local newspaper. She had written, “Prevention is the best medicine “ that is what I believe also in the shoes that I sell.
Q5 – What are your favourite Forever Aloe Vera products?
Q6 – How have Forever Living products benefited your health and wellbeing?
The Heat Lotion contains heating agents that provide blissful relief of the strains of every day. Great for warming up before exercise or soothing aches.
The Immublend helps support the body’s defence system. This supplement is high in vitamin C,D and zinc all of which contribute to the normal functions of the immune system. Which I find important while meeting with people every day, I need a good immune system.
