Seamus Buckley – Director

Seamus has been in practice since qualifying as a chartered accountant in 1977 when he formed Seamus Buckley & Co., [changed to Buckley Kiely & Co. in 1990].  Since forming the practice Seamus is committed to achieving excellence by delivering a high quality service. Having noticed on numerous ocassions that clients were not receiving good advice in relation to their investments and pensions, Seamus and John Kiely made the decision in 2007 to set up an arm of the business to provide (initially) clients with independent expert financial advice.  Since then, Seamus has been delighted to see the continued expansion of the business and is not surprised that this has moved far beyond the initial client base of the accountancy practice.
