Centenary – 8 July 2016

5th July 2016

On Friday 8 July, 2016 O’Dwyer Solicitors reach the milestone of 100 years of service.

The original practice was opened shortly after the Easter Rising in July 1916 by Austin J Crean. He was a native of Ballyhaunis and held the position of Sheriff and Returning Officer for County Mayo. He remained in practice on his own until 1936 when he was joined by Micheál O’Cleirigh. The practice became Crean and O’Cleirigh Solicitors. Micheál O’Cleirigh subsequently left the practice to concentrate on his political career TD and also as County Registrar for Dublin. Patrick M O’Dwyer joined the firm in 1939 and continued in practice until his death in 1965. The current quintet of solicitors began with John O’Dwyer in 1968 joined over the years by Evan O’Dwyer, Laura Glennon, Conor O’Dwyer and Elaine Silke.

We take this opportunity to thank all of our staff past and present for their dedication to the firm.

In reaching this milestone we owe a significant debt of gratitude to you our clients. No practice can survive without the loyalty and support of clients and we are immensely thankful to you for continuing to rely upon us to provide your legal services.

We are delighted to remain available for you and to continue to fulfil our ethos of putting our clients first as we enter into our 101st year of service.

We look forward to continuing to assist our clients long into the future.

Go raibh maith agaibh.
