Eugene McCullagh, who has been with McAleer Jackson for three years, has just passed the Final Admitting Examination of Chartered Accountants Ireland. Eugene was also placed in the top 10% in the specialist Taxation paper.  

Commenting on Eugene’s recent success, Hugh McAleer stated “It is a testament to Eugene’s hard work and dedication that he has reached this milestone. I am delighted for him. It is also an example of the firm’s commitment to the recruitment and training of high calibre individuals. Eugene will reinforce our trademark high level of professional service.”

Eugene, from just outside Plumbridge, has reached the end of a six year journey that began when he started studying Accounting at Queen’s University, Belfast in 2007. After graduating in May 2010, he commenced employment with McAleer Mullan Jackson the following month, and has undertaken examinations each year with Chartered Accountants Ireland, culminating in the Final Admitting Examination sat in September 2013.

Eugene said “The relief that I feel is just wonderful. It was a long haul, starting all the way back in 2007, to reach this stage, but now that I have crossed the line and passed the FAE, every hour of study put in over these six years has absolutely been worth it. The Chartered Accountancy qualification is such a valuable one and will be with me over a lifetime now”.

This will bring the number of fully qualified chartered accountants within the firm to nine, which puts us at the forefront of local accountancy practices.
