We will work closely with you, your Auctioneer, Engineer, Bank and Tax Advisor to ensure you are full advised and updated on all aspects of your transaction.


The ending of a personal relationship is a life-altering event, affecting you, your partner, your children, and impacting on your financial future. Sometimes it can be hard to approach these situations without emotion or objectivity and we understand this, and we’re here to help and guide you through this very difficult and stressful time.

What our Clients Say

We recently acquired the services of Tynan O’Donovan Solicitors because clients of ours needed assistance in the area of company law.

Although very busy, Kieran and his staff were extremely quick to correspond with us on the matter. After we had provided all the required information, they were able to arrange a court date sooner than expected and resolved the matter in court with no delays. They were thorough, professional and details in their work. Our clients were delighted with the service provided.

We will be using Tynan O’Donovan Solicitors in future and we would happily recommend Kieran and his colleagues to any client or individual in need of legal expertise

-Kvein Shine, Liston Lonergan Meade


My husband and I were in the same situation as many people I provide financial advise to. We had never arranged a will.

It seems like only yesterday that we had no commitments or responsibilities, and today we have careers and children and a mortgage. We have known for a long time that we should sort out our will and it has stayed on the to do list for longer than it should have.

After meeting with Kieran we decided to get it arranged. The process was much easier than we thought it would be. Kieran was informative and efficient. We now have peace of mind that our will is in place and we got professional advice regarding a very important document.

If you do not have your will arranged, I would encourage you to contact Kieran as soon as possible and arrange a first consultation. Working in the area of personal financial planning, I can see first hand how important a document it is to have in place.
