A Brief History

In November 1977, Sean Daly opened his doors to the public at 34 Henry Street, Kenmare, Co. Kerry. At that time Sean Daly & Co. offered Auctioneering/Real Estate services, Insurance & financial services. Since that time the office has grown substantially and now employs a total of 6 staff. Sean Daly & Co has gone from strength to strength and has always been able to adapt to an ever changing world.

On the 1st of February 2004: The real estate section of Sean Daly & Co. joined the franchise of Sherry FitzGerald and the Sherry FitzGerald Daly Kenmare brand was formed. This was an important leap forward for the auctioneering side of the firm. The directors felt that joining the Sherry Fitzgerald franchise would offer our clients properties a national brand and a network of over one hundred Sherry FitzGerald offices in which to market their properties.

Sean Daly & Co. is still very much involved with the insurance and financial services part of business. We offer our general insurance customers the choice of products from twenty nine companies. The firm also offers financial products through our six life companies.
