The Limerick Tidy Towns monthly award for September has gone to the Glentworth Street offices of Keating Connolly Sellors Solicitors, as a perfect example of how beautiful our Georgian buildings can be when maintained to the highest of standards. Pictured outside the premises at 6/7 Glentworth Street being presented with the award by Maura and Sharon are Managing Partner Stephen Keogh, Ronan Hynes, Niall Sheehy, Miriam O’Connor, Ian Sheehy and Eugene Cush.
From a Tidy Towns perspective, Limerick’s Georgian Quarter is hugely important and though it still has its problems with a number of buildings in disrepair, we are hopeful that the planned regeneration of the area transforms it in the coming years. In the meantime however, as an example of the potential these magnificent buildings have when sympathetically restored and maintained, you could not look past the Glentworth Street offices of Keating Connolly Sellors. The paintwork on the original sash windows and traditional bright red doors is pristine and the brickwork perfectly pointed. Adding to this, are eye-catching window boxes with bright floral displays, beautifully maintained traditional railings and a spotlessly clean exterior and basement area, all of which greatly enhance the historic Georgian features and makes the building a huge asset to the street as a whole.
If Keating Connolly Sellors’ offices are an example of how perfectly state of the art modernity can blend with tradition, then so too is the firm itself as though the seeds of the practice were sown more than 150 years ago, Keating Connolly Sellors was only formed this year after the merging of two of Limerick’s largest law practices, Connolly Sellors Geraghty and Keating & Keogh Solicitors. From its offices at Glentworth Street and also 91 O’Connell Street, the new firm now employs over 30 people and services a Limerick, Munster and international client base. They offer the very best of professional advice across all of the legal disciplines, including corporate banking, commercial property, litigation and family law and can be contacted on 061 414355, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website www.sellors.ie
