Coffee morning in support of Irish Cancer Society
On Thursday, 15 September, EisnerAmper Ireland hosted a coffee morning to support staff member Anna Curley, Senior in our Tax team, who will be climbing Kilimanjaro in October to raise funds for the Irish Cancer Society. The Irish Cancer Society has provided a huge amount of support to Anna and her family during Anna’s younger sister’s illness and Anna is undertaking this challenge to make her contribution so other families can benefit from these services. The coffee morning was a big success with staff members generously donating both their baking skills and money, resulting in a total sum of €275 being raised.
All the staff here at EisnerAmper Ireland would like to wish Anna the best of luck with her fundraising and the Kilimanjaro climb. If you’d like more information would like to make a donation to her cause, please see her fundraising page here.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →

A trip back to 1916
On Thursday 23 June, members of EisnerAmper Ireland’s Advisory and Service Excellence Teams enjoyed an afternoon of culture in Dublin city. The afternoon began with a 1916 Freedom Tour. Staff boarded their military style tour truck at St. Stephen’s Green where they were met by their tour guide and driver who were both dressed in uniforms of the period. The tour took in the sights of all the key 1916 battle locations including O’Connell street, Mount street bridge and The Jacob’s factory. The tour guide told the story of the battle as it unfolded at each location and entertained the group with less known stories, including the ceasefire that occurred in order to feed the ducks in St. Stephen’s Green. At the end of the tour staff were dropped off at the Sussex Restaurant for some traditional Irish cuisine, followed by live music in O’Brien’s.Life at EisnerAmper Ireland →
