Aine Collins, President of CPA (Certified Public Accountants) Ireland, speaking at the conferring, commended the graduating group saying, “As we face into yet more challenging economic times, the skill and insight accountants bring to their work will be critical to helping all businesses endure. Accountancy is a vibrant career that encompasses not just essential duties in finance but is increasingly driving business sustainability, governance and the use of tech. I am delighted to welcome my new CPA colleagues to the profession and wish them every future success. 

“In conjunction with our sponsors, CPA Ireland each year presents awards to those students who have achieved the highest examination mark in each subject for the CPA examinations. Congratulations, to Marie and Jurate, and to all the 2022 prize-winners who come from diverse roles in both practice and industry and thank you to all our partner firms involved in this event.”
