Colin Comerford


Ger and I formed Comerford Foley to give our clients the quality of service and advice they deserve along the way. I love what I do.

Ger Foley


Comerford Foley was founded from a desire to create a firm that can help small business owners achieve their goals while at the same time create a better personal life for myself and my family.

I started working with Comerford Foley in 2018, excited by all the different aspects involved in the role (management accounts, finance, tax work) but mostly attracted to the family culture of the firm.

I have always loved working with numbers. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction when everything balances! I’m a very organised person by nature so I love sorting books and records, getting everything processed and kept up to date. I joined the Comerford Foley team in 2015 having worked with Ger and Colin at a big four firm. The thing I love about CF is the relationship we have with our clients which I believe is so important. I consider them friends more than simply clients.
