KPMG Cork 40th Anniversary Alumni Dinner 

Noel Holland, Fiona Murphy and Michael Lynch

KPMG’s Cork practice hosted a special Alumni Dinner on Friday 5 October 2012 in Aula Maxima, UCC to celebrate KPMG’s 40th anniversary of doing business in Munster.


Speaking at the celebrations, Barrie O’Connell (partner, KPMG) said, “The contribution of our Alumni, combined with the commitment of the current team in Cork, has defined our success. The experience and expertise of our people, past and present, has been fundamental in ensuring our position as the adviser of choice for so many dynamic Irish companies and multinational businesses that choose Munster as a location.”

Barrie also gave special thanks to those who had made the trip from overseas, along with all former and retired partners.


Over 150 guests, consisting of current and former KPMG friends and colleagues, attended the event where fond memories of the past 40 years were recalled, shared and enjoyed throughout the evening. Some people even renewed acquaintances after 30-plus years.


During the evening, entertainment was provided by two local artists. Classical trio Bruvura created a relaxed and conversational atmosphere during the drinks reception, while the Loungeman entertained guests after dinner, with his “rat pack” rendition. 


The event was a truly terrific success. Thanks to UCC and Kylemore Catering for hosting the event and to all of our Cork alumni who joined us on the evening.
