I am one of the two names over the door here at Twomey Moran and it is fair to say that taxation runs pretty deep in my veins. My personal passion is for helping wealthy families and individuals to manage and optimise their tax affairs and I take great pleasure in developing long-term relationships that make a real difference in the lives of our clients.
Before co-founding the business, I spent over 8 years in the Private Client Departments of both Price Waterhouse and Coopers & Lybrand, advising a portfolio of blue-chip individual clients on various aspects of taxation.
In 1997, I yielded to my growing entrepreneurial instincts and co-founded Kennelly & Twomey. In 2010, the old Kennelly & Twomey business split into two separate businesses, one being Twomey Moran, managed by myself and Dave Moran – the Cork (me) and Galway (Dave) team!
The experience of co-founding and managing these two businesses has given me a real sense of empathy for my clients, many of whom have created their own wealth through various business ventures.
My preoccupation with all things tax-related is pretty easy to spot. I am a Council member (non-executive director) of the Irish Taxation Institute, having been elected to that role three times. Over the last 20+ years, I have lectured, spoken at conferences and have written articles on many tax issues.
Importantly, from the perspective of my clients, I am also one of a small team of tax advisers on the Large Cases Division network of the Irish Taxation Institute and meet regularly with Revenues Large Cases Division to review and clarify current issues between tax advisers and Revenue.
If you have visited our office you will see that being from Cork is never forgotten!
