Meet the team

Each of our three specialist divisions is headed up by a partner with expertise in that service – and you will always deal with a principal of the firm. You enjoy one-to-one attention, with the support of a larger team to handle work of scale.

Managing Partner

Peter Keogh FCA

After a career that took him from KPMG in Dublin to British Vita PLC in Paris and back to BDO Simpson Xavier and Deloitte in Limerick, Peter founded the firm – knowing that he wanted to build something with a difference. Peter is Keogh Ryan Tierney’s managing partner – and with 20 years’ experience in corporate finance transactions, he heads up the Advisory division of the company. Peter has a real interest in helping clients make their businesses work for them, so that – on every front – they get what they want from the effort they put in. The firm’s commitment to recruiting people with a difference is close to Peter’s heart and he enjoys seeing trainees using their time at the company to develop in different aspects of their life. Peter is also currently successfully leading a number of business sale and fundraising transactions.

Partner

Paul Tierney FCA

Originally from Tipperary, Paul Tierney is the most recent partner appointment to the firm, joining the firm in January 2015. He holds a BA in Accounting and Finance and an MBS in Accounting from Dublin City University – and he is also a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland. Paul has 20 years of ‘Big 4’ experience and today specialises in the provision of audit and advisory services. He has worked extensively for SME clients – both owner-managed and those with multiple stakeholders. Paul has experience across many types of industries, but has a particular interest in the motor, pharmacy and hotel/leisure sectors – making him a vital and successful contributor to the firm’s strategy of specialisation.

Part of the Community

We are very much a firm ‘of the City’ – rooted in Limerick and vested in the community. Committed to place and people. The Mid West has been good to us, supporting our success and growth – and we enjoy giving back in sincere and meaningful ways. We want to see the region flourish as a business centre – and one of the ways we can do this is by helping our clients’ businesses succeed.

Talent nurturing and the mentoring of the next generation of dynamic accountants are important to us: we enjoy offering leadership, sharing our knowledge and helping others to learn and grow.

Beyond business, we are actively involved in many community initiatives and organisations, contributing to several worthy causes.

As a company that supports work-life balance, we recruit active people who have passions out of the office. Our team members are proud members of Limerick Football, GAA, Munster Rugby, Tipperary Camogie, Limerick Hurling and Limerick Harriers – while some are also involved in golf, sailing and rally driving.

"Paul provided me with a first class service delivery from day one. Technically solid, efficient, responsive, knowledgeable and an excellent sounding board on many matters, not just audit and accounting. I can highly recommend Paul for any accounting, advisory and business need.”
