We are delighted to celebrate ten years in business. Established in the summer of 2012 by Mary McKeogh, Eoin Gallagher and Eoin Ryan with 12 staff based in Shannon Street, Limerick we are now the largest independent group of accounting and tax professionals in the Midwest region, with a reach far beyond our geography.
When setting up the firm all 3 partners already had many years’ experience in practice and with their loyal client base they quickly grew the firm, moving to larger offices in 45 O’Connell Street, Limerick in early 2015.
Continuing the firm’s expansion they opened a Nenagh office in 2017, merging with the highly-respected Nenagh practice Quinlan Holohan with Audit Partner William Lomasney joining the firm. In 2018 the Ennis firm Clune Lynch merged with the firm establishing the Ennis-based McKeogh Gallagher Ryan office.
These milestones, combined with the firm’s growth, means McKeogh Gallagher Ryan now brings together over 60 professionals with vast experience and knowledge. As a dedicated training practice we are committed to hiring the best and brightest graduates from the Midwest region as we continue to grow our firm and train the next generation of accountancy and tax professionals.
Speaking about the ten-year anniversary Tax Partner Mary McKeogh stated: “As with so much in life we have navigated ups and downs and are grateful to have had a very busy and productive first ten years in operation. We have really enjoyed working with our clients and building our firm. It is invigorating to help clients, watch their businesses grow and succeed, in tandem with our firm. And of course to see how our staff have also developed, with many trainees moving on to successful careers further afield once qualified, as is the natural order of things in our profession.
“When we started out, we were emerging from recession and worked with our clients to help them through quite challenging trading conditions. No more so than in the present time, when after two years of a pandemic we find ourselves faced with global turmoil and the cost-of-living crisis. What we have learned is to stay the course, with our clients and staff, with a solid team behind you and sound reasoning you can face any challenge.”
The firm is also a member of the HLB International accountancy network, with a presence in 157 countries and over 38,000 professionals, extending the firm’s reach far beyond its geographic boundaries.
