Lis­ney toasts deal with pub ex­perts Mor­ris­sey’s

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Business & Appointments - - FRONT PAGE -

The ac­qui­si­tion brings the to­tal num­ber of em­ploy­ees at Lis­ney to more than 140 across its Dublin, Cork and Belfast of­fices.

“This pur­chase is a re­ally good strate­gic and syn­er­getic fit for Lis­ney and plays an im­por­tant role in our ex­pan­sion plans. It will give us a very strong pres­ence in the li­censed prop­erty mar­ket where there is real and ex­cit­ing change oc­cur­ring,” said Dun­can Lys­ter, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Lis­ney.

“We pride our­selves on the qual­ity of our peo­ple, and Tony along with his team brings with them a wealth of spe­cial­ist knowl­edge as well as a loyal client fol­low­ing.”

Tony Mor­ris­sey de­scribed the deal with Lis­ney as an “ex­cel­lent way of se­cur­ing the Mor­ris­sey’s brand”, and said that it would give the com­pany ex­tra strength to de­velop and ex­pand.

He added: “We recog­nise the chang­ing face of the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try and we ac­knowl­edge our clients’ de­mands for ad­vice beyond our niche spe­cial­ity,” he said. “I firmly be­lieve this new re­la­tion­ship is one my late grand­fa­ther, fa­ther and late brother, Bill would ap­prove of.”

Mor­ris­sey’s was es­tab­lished in Ne­nagh, Co Tip­per­ary in the 1930s, by Daniel Mor­ris­sey, a se­nior politi­cian for 35 years and a for­mer Min­is­ter of In­dus­try & Com­merce. In 1946, the com­pany moved to Dublin, en­cour­aged by sev­eral prom­i­nent mem­bers of the Dublin li­censed trade, where Dan was joined by his two sons, Tony and Liam.
