Gearóid has been an accountant in practice for over 40 years. He is currently the senior director at ODM Accountants who specialise in strategic business and accountancy services for individuals and businesses across Ireland.
Addressing the members at the AGM he called on the Government to fully commit to supporting regional growth if SMEs in Ireland are to continue to thrive noting that ‘the recently announced Rural Regeneration and Development Fund is welcome, but too restrictive to maximise its value.’

Gearóid has been an active member of the Institute’s SMP Committee for many years. Gearóid was co-opted to Council on September 2010.
