TOMMY Walsh may have put his Kerry jersey away, but the Head of Taxation at CDS Law & Tax LLP is playing a more central role for his firm after being elected to the Council of the Irish Tax Institute.

The All-Ireland Senior Football winner will serve on the Council which oversees the strategic governance of the leading representative body for Ireland’s Chartered Tax Advisors.

He announced his retirement from inter-county football with Kerry last month. “By retiring from inter-county football, it obviously gives me a bit more time from week to week. We’ve recently opened a CDS Law & Tax office in Denny Street, Tralee and I will have more time to drive that,” he said.

“I decided to retire from inter-county football because of age predominantly I suppose. Unfortunately your body starts to creak a bit when you go past 30, but I have had a very enjoyable career. I was in and out of the Kerry scene obviously and I enjoyed my stints in there. There were many highs and lows but I just felt that it was my time.”

“I was elected to the Council of the Irish Tax Institute in June and took up my appointment in September. It’s great for the firm to have some representation on the Council in County Kerry.”

“My involvement on the Council will provide me with an opportunity to be involved in the strategic direction and governance of the Institute and provide a forum for local lawyers, accountants and tax professionals to make representations through me. Through my involvement on various committees, the make-up of which will be determined in the coming weeks, I expect to work closely with other Council members by discussing matters that we’re seeing and experiencing within the industry. I’m very much looking forward to my tenure with the Council.”

Tommy Walsh is an AITI Chartered Tax Advisor and his undergraduate qualification is in Construction and Management which he has used as a grounding to develop his tax career.

Whilst playing professional football in Australia he strengthened his knowledge by gaining further university qualifications in commerce.
