KERRY’S comeback kid Tommy Walsh can prepare for the new National League and Championship season from a base closer to home following a business merger that will reduce the amount of time he spend travelling for work reasons.

Cork based firm CDS Law & Tax, for whom Walsh is a chartered tax advisor, has teamed up with and Tralee-based company MJS Legal and it will see the Denny Street practice rebranded as CDS Law & Tax Kerry.

MJS legal principal Michael Stack joins the CDS team as a solicitor based out of the Tralee office whose legal team will be led by fellow Kerry native Jennifer Downing, head of property with CDS.

Walsh, 31, who returned to the Kerry set-up last season, and make quite an impact after two years concentrating on club football, said the opportunity to put down his business roots in his home town represented “an open shot on goal”.
“My ties to Tralee and my commitment to my native county are no secret, obviously,” said the Kerins O’Rahilly’s clubman, who helped Kerry reach the All-Ireland after returning to the green and gold following a long absence.
“To be able to build a business base in my home town is hugely significant for me in terms of squaring the circle between my professional and private lives,” added the 2008 All-Star Young Footballer of the Year.
