Graphic congratulating Fergus, Anita and Jane on thier promotionsWe are pleased to announce the following promotions in our Limerick office: Fergus O’Regan as Manager in our Tax Department, Anita McGuinness as Assistant Manager in our General Practice Division and Jane Hughes as Assistant Manager in our Tax Department.

The firm is delighted to emerge from the challenge of the previous, pandemic-dominated, two years with such good news and a positive outlook. As we approach our 10-year anniversary we are looking forward to a busy and productive 2022 across our three offices in Limerick, Ennis and Nenagh.

While the pandemic has been very difficult on so many levels it did encourage us to adapt our technologies and work practices to continue supporting our clients and staff. We maintained our graduate training programmes, participation in UL’s CoOperative education programme, enabled our staff to work from home and continued meeting our clients’ needs remotely, or in person, as the situation and public health dictated. We are now well positioned and resourced to deal with all of 2022’s challenges.
