About CH Tralee

CH Tralee was founded by Patricia Chute and Fionàn Harty in 1967. Chute Harty Chemists subsequently became C.H Chemists.

Patricia was the Tralee Rose in the International Rose of Tralee Festival and she caught the eye of a young Fionàn Harty who operated a pharmacy in Rock Street. After the couple married they began to develop Patricia's own family business Chute's Chemists (in The Mall).  

Patricia, a qualified beautician developed the beauty side of the business while Fionàn concentrated on the pharmacy side.  The business developed over the years with the addition of their daughter Claire, an ophthalmic optician and their son Peter, a pharmacist.Today Peter and Claire continue their parents ethos along with a talented team of forty four. 

The CH philosophy is to think ahead to stay ahead, hence in living by this philosophy we endeavour to stock the most current and innovative products and services. We are committed to providing exceptional customer and patient care and invest heavily in training our team to the highest level to ensure the best possible service.
