The Liam Keane and partners team in Dunshaughlin stated: “With Raymond’s appointment yesterday and Liam having been appointed state solicitor for County Meath two years ago it has certainly been a busy time for us in LKP.

“Raymond departs with immediate effect but our team will continue to serve the legal needs of our clients in the same professional manner and we expect a new solicitor to join us shortly to fill the very big shoes Raymond leaves behind.

Meath Live wishes Raymond all of the very best in his new role and have no doubt he will do the entire LKP team proud.
