Tom Carolan, B.Comm., F.C.A.


I am a graduate Chartered Accountant with over thirty years’ experience in the accountancy profession. I set up Tom Carolan & Co in 1991. I enjoyed brief spells in industry as a financial controller / director and in banking as a financial analyst, specialising in off-balance sheet finance.

Born in 1956, I am married with 2 children and I live in The Downs, just 8Km to the east of Mullingar. My hobbies include sports of all kinds, reading, cinema and, most of all, travel.

I am a keen cyclist and I have cycled in Peru, Jamaica, India, Kyrgyzstan, England, China, Pakistan, Thailand, Laos, Botswana, South Africa, Costa Rica and Japan, as well as completing many cycling tours here in Ireland.

I am also interested in music, particularly jazz, country and rock. I am a keen amateur musician (my guitar playing is better than it sounds!).

I have also appeared as a contestant on Channel 4’s Countdown.
