Sarah-Jane O’Keeffe becomes Ireland’s first female examiner

History was made last week when Baker Tilly Ireland’s Sarah-Jane O’Keeffe was appointed Ireland’s first female examiner. The announcement came one day after a High Court judge appealed for women to be appointed as examiners and liquidators.

The Trim Circuit Court in Dundalk, County Louth has appointed Sarah-Jane O’Keeffe to the Eastern Seaboard bar, restaurant and bakery, where 43 jobs are at risk.

This is the first time a female examiner has been appointed since the examinership process was introduced in 1990.

Sarah Jane O’Keefe joined Baker Tilly five years ago and has progressed to become an experienced insolvency practitioner within the firm. She was previously shortlisted for ‘Accountant of the Year 2018’ at the Irish Early Career Award.
