Annett is a fully qualified Accounting Technician and a member of Accounting Technicians Ireland. Outside the office, Annett likes fast cars, photography and all the glamour that goes with that.
She climbed to Mount Everest Base Camp in 2014 and recalls the views and people up there as unforgettable.

I joined our practice in 2021 as Administrator and have a keen interest in AML procedures. I enjoy meeting new people and learning about their businesses and what makes them work best. Outside of the office, I speak 6 languages and like to climb the local Diamond mountain with my family, travelling and reading. I have left my life as a former professional singer behind and do not miss my time on the road one bit.
Hi, I’m Lisa, a native of Connemara, Co. Galway. I completed Business/Secretarial studies and worked for Kevin Barry more than 20 years ago. Since then, I have married, had 4 children, lived in the Middle East for 2 years and more recently returned from 7 years living in Belgium.
My family and I have resettled back home and I’m happy to join the team again with Kevin & colleagues, and face some new work challenges. In my free time, I love to travel, connect with old friends, enjoy walking, reading and family gatherings.
I am currently studying International Commerce in UCD, but work with here seasonally and remotely on a regular basis. I handle AML onboarding and often am involved in the Dext and Quickbooks onboarding area.
I was educated at Clifden Community School, and Cistercian College Roscrea and have a keen interest in Golf and Gaelic Football, being part of the Naomh Feichin Clifden squad. I see myself maintaining a strong career in business when I graduate and hopes to include continued international travel where possible. (Don’t we all!)
