Are you looking for a Chartered Accountant with real world experience, someone to roll up her sleeves to help you?

My name is Julia Relihan and I qualified, with honours, from a top accounting university in the United States. I trained as a Chartered Accountant in Ireland at advanced, professional and ethically run Big 4 accounting practices, where I learned from, and worked with, the leading minds in business. Can I work for YOU?

Co-operation, knowledge, research and determination, given in a friendly, warm and open manner, seeing each other as part of a team, a team to bring your business where you want it to go.

Henry Ford (a man with no secondary education, yet having one of the most brilliant business minds of all time, and a hero of mine), always advised the hire of the best minds in whatever activity the business needs to get done (including accounting). Once he stated that he did not need to know facts, he could simply press a button and he had the best educated minds in his office in five minutes to get the facts for him. Take his advice. It worked.

I am committed to giving key clients the highest level of expertise on anything from data capture procedures through to financial, audit, tax and company law compliance, as well as decision making analytical tools, discussions/talk through of ideas. A one stop shop for all your accounting needs.
