Jamie O Hanlon – Managing Director




“I recall being an eighteen year old returning to Ireland having spent two months in Spain, attempting to mind children for the summer. I was awaiting exam results and the prospect of a career choice in the coming weeks. I saw an advert for a business college offering professional accountancy courses and thought that in order to be a BIG SHOT business man in the future I would need a good understanding of business financials. Little did I realise that twenty seven years later that the business I would establish would be a professional services firm offering business and financial support to the SME business sector. I have to say that I enjoy, hugely, my role as an adviser to business owners and managers. My position with the firms’ clients allows me to be able to support them on an on-going basis – I truly feel that I am a PARTNER in their business and love to hear from them when my help is needed”.


Jamie is a fellow of The Association of Certified Chartered Accountants. and has gained significant exposure within the financial and managerial function of start-up and developing businesses and is keen to ensure that his professional skills are maintained and employed to the highest standard and benefit of client organisations. Jamie is a founding member of Avid Partners.

Ciara McCullagh – Senior Accountant




Having left my home in Co. Tyrone 10 years ago I moved to Co. Laois and this is where my true interest for Accountancy started. I have gained a wealth of experience and knowledge over the 14 years I have worked in public accounting practices and have covered many areas of Accountancy. I work closely with a wide range of industries some of which include the Food & Beverage sector, Retail and Hospitality industry, Construction Industry, Health & Safety sector and Landlords. I take a lot of pride in my job and in the relationships I have built up with our clients. I am in my ninth year with Avid Partners and still work closely with all the clients I started working with 9 years ago.


I love being able to help people and I enjoy helping clients look at their business from different perspectives to ensure they are maximising their business performance whilst effectively managing their taxation position. I go above and beyond when it comes to identifying and adding real value to your business. There is nothing as satisfying as seeing a client happy with the service they are receiving. My personality is of a very caring nature and outside of work I like to look after those that are close to me in my life and this does not change when I am in work.

“I enjoy coming into work every day and looking for ways to both improve our own company position as well as clients. I have an entrepreneurial spirit as a result of working with start ups myself and can see the passion and relate to the sense of accomplishments business owners feel when achieving something worthwhile in their business. I enjoy playing golf, travelling and am a keen Everton Football fan for my sins. I also enjoy learning new things and pushing myself beyond the comfort zone. I believe that that a person must enjoy coming to work everyday as like is too short not to enjoy what you do. A person would be as enthusiastic coming into work in the morning as going home at the end of the day”.

Yes Avid Partners have two divisions of the company. We have an accountancy division that handles your day to day financial necessities and we also have an advisory division to assist companies develop their businesses. This can include consultancy, marketing and guidance when required. We can act as a Chairperson for your organisation if required and can also take away some of the day to day pressures that can restrict growth and slow development. Avid Partners can help with both of the critical aspects of a company, keeping costs down as much as possible and growing revenues exponentially. Technology companies need patience in developing their visions and an involved day to day partner is the best way of keeping a good business balance.
It is a common problem for companies who are in a situation where their business is growing in real terms (users, visitors) but sales is not matching the other growth metrics as traditionally sales lags behind growth (Twitter, Linked In, etc). So what do you do? Every business needs access to finance to pay operating costs which gives the company time to develop future revenue streams. Thankfully the situation is getting better with many tech friendly finance options coming on stream such as micro financing, crowd funding and government agencies are also starting to show support interests.
Every company starts out small with very limited resources at the beginning of the project. The key is to make the most from the resources you have and to seek out alliances, support systems and working partners. Start ups face many challenges including access to capital, regulatory requirements, economies of scale. We can help you develop your concept and will assist in every way possible from accountancy and day to day support to advisory services and raising finance. We can assist in a number of ways and have a portfolio of growing small companies that we help on an on-going basis.
