About Us

Welcome to Martin & Company

We are a long established firm of professional advisors. Originally operating since 1986 from Mitchelstown in Co. Cork, we opened a second office in the North Valley Business Centre, Old Mallow Road in Cork in 2007 to make ourselves more accessible to our continuously expanding client base in Cork City and the surrounding environs.

The practice is a two partner firm, each with a broad experience in many business areas from sole trader & company start-up to the workings of large multinationals. Liam Martin was one of the founder members of the practice in 1986 having previously trained in both small and large practices. Ailish Martin, who qualified as a chartered accountant in 1999 joined the practice as a partner in January 2005 having gained considerable experience working in both small and large practices as well as industry.

The firm's extensive client base encompasses a diverse range of sectors and has a wide geographical spread throughout Munster. Martin & Company places a huge emphasis on personal service to clients, providing a one-to-one approach, applying individual solutions to individual needs. We believe in a value-added approach, providing a comprehensive review of every aspect of a client's business, with particular emphasis on where a business can use it's resources more efficiently, effectively and most important of all…profitably.
