Meet The Team

Kevin Barry Chartered Accountant

Kevin Barry,
Director

kevin@kevinbarry.ie

I think I can tell a lot about people by observing how they run their businesses and spend their money. Most people can.

  • Trained as a Chartered Accountant with PWC in Dublin and Grand Cayman.
  • Platinum Quickbooks Advisor, regularly hired for Domestic and International Webinars by Intuit Quickbooks in relation to the Quickbooks Ireland rollout.
  • Have transitioned hundreds of businesses to online accounting with 100% success
  • 20+ years using and teaching Quickbooks
  • The only reason people do not successfully transition to online quickbooks is they don’t understand the massive benefits in:
    • tax saving
    • book keeper cost saving
    • huge increase in your accountants productivity

Ciara Hogan,
Administration

ciara@kevinbarry.ie

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.

Lisa Sammon,
Administrative Assistant

lisasammon@kevinbarry.ie

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.

 Matthew Barry

Matthew Barry,

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!)
