About Us

Daisy Mauhay - cEO

In 2016, with the support of her husband Ronald Mauhay, Daisy Mauhay established The Nightingale Placement Agency from the comfort of their home. The agency subsequently flourished and blossomed into a thriving and prosperous company. With her 28 years of experience as a senior staff nurse and her esteemed role as a leader within the Filipino Healthcare Community in Ireland, Daisy firmly holds the belief that tending to clients is more than just a job – it’s a calling. 

“We treat our clients and our candidates the way we want ourselves and our families to be treated”

–  Daisy Mauhay
