Deirdre O’Donovan

Deirdre joined McCarthy + Co in April 2013. Deirdre graduated from Cork Institute of Technology in June 2002 with a first class honours Business Studies Degree. She previously worked in insurance including a role with FBD Insurance and a brokerage. This insurance background enabled her to take on a supervisory role in the Injuries Board. She has four years legal secretary experience and now works closely with John and Liam dealing personal injury* and medical negligence* claims.


Deirdre is happiest helping clients with their claims, making sure all of the paperwork is in order and that all of the i’s are dotted and the t’s crossed. She has a big motherly heart and her sympathy for clients who have sustained injury is evident of her good nature and approachability.

Deirdre is married with three young children and enjoys country living with her family. She is a keen baker and unwinds baking cakes with her three little helpers with happy sticky hands and faces.
