LIMERICK Institute of Technology graduate Lisa Boland is celebrating this week after qualifying as a registered tax consultant.

Lisa graduated from LIT in 2008 with a BA of Business in Law and Taxation.

Upon graduation, Lisa joined Keogh Summers chartered accountants - based at the Crescent - and began studying for the AITI tax exams, which is the profession’s most recognised tax qualification.

Last week, she qualified, and to mark the occasion, Donnacha McNamara, head of business at LIT, was on hand to congratulate her.

He said LIT hopes to continue the relationship it has with Keogh Somers.

“The most recent LIT graduate survey showed that 64 per cent of LIT graduates secured employment, over half of them in the Mid West Region.”

Mr McNamara described Keogh Somers chartered accountants as “an excellent example of a local firm employing local graduates. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to meet past graduates and see them progress towards professional qualifications.

LIT hopes to build on their existing relationship with the Keogh Somers firm which allows our graduates to have the opportunity to train and develop at an expanding and dynamic accountancy firm in Limerick city.”
