Ennis Chamber member McKeogh Gallagher Ryan, the largest independent group of accounting and tax professionals in the Midwest, are celebrating ten years in business. The firm was established in the summer of 2012 by Mary McKeogh, Eoin Gallagher and Eoin Ryan. All three partners already had many years’ experience in practice and with their loyal client base they quickly grew the firm.
Continuing the firm’s expansion they opened a Nenagh office in 2017 and in 2018 the Ennis firm Clune Lynch merged with the firm establishing the Ennis-based McKeogh Gallagher Ryan office on O’Connell Street.
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 it is committed to hiring the best and brightest graduates from the Midwest region it continues to grow the 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.”
Audit Partner Eoin Gallagher, who oversees the Ennis office, said, “We are delighted to mark the 10-year anniversary of McKeogh Gallagher Ryan. Having an office in Ennis has enabled us to really grow our Clare-Galway client base and expand our services, providing local advice to the business community here. The Ennis team, already well established and respected under the Clune Lynch moniker, have been a great addition to McKeogh Gallagher Ryan, increasing the Banner dimension to the firm with the astute Clare insight we bring!”
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.
