About Us

Jim Gilligan

Jim Gilligan
Jim qualified as a chartered accountant in 1977, having trained with Gilroy Gannon in Sligo. He moved to Deloitte in Dublin, and when promoted to manager, left to set up his own firm. It was to Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary he moved to join John Walsh who was looking for someone to support his practice.

The business grew quickly, and in 1981, they opened a sister office in Clonmel. The rest of the eighties were difficult and growth was slow. The nineties were a lot better and substantial growth took place. The millennium was in hindsight the pinnacle of Ireland’s economic success and the business benefited greatly. They also purchased two smaller practices in Clonmel.

Despite the current economic climate, business remains solid, and while some clients are experiencing difficulty and struggling to survive, most are hanging in there and adjusting their businesses. The outlook for the medium to long term remains positive.
