This was informal ,the issue of career change and how to  follow this new career as a Legal Executive was requested. In response an outline of how the college gives it support was indicated.

Gillian Moore – Profile


Gillian Moore is a legal executive at Keating Connolly Sellors.  She holds an LLB from the University of Limerick and has vast experience in the areas of distressed sales and residential conveyancing.  

During her employment with Connolly Sellors Geraghty (prior to the merger), Gillian was provided with a number of opportunities, which allowed her to develop and expand her knowledge of legal services. Under the guidance of a senior partner, Gillian worked in the conveyancing department providing legal services associated with residential building developments and commercial developments.


2009 saw an opportunity arise to join the defence litigation department.  Initially, the role was to provide litigation support in relation to High and Circuit Court matter.  Over time, Gillian became instrumental in providing a best in class service offering to one of Ireland’s largest insurance companies.  Gillian worked under the guidance of Joseph Murphy, senior litigation partner.  Whilst working with Mr Murphy Gillian absorbed a wealth of knowledge and experience which stood to Gillian later on in her career.


In April 2015, Connolly Sellors Geraghty merged with Keating and Keogh to form Keating Connolly Sellors.  Gillian was offered the opportunity to work within the property department and continues to work within this area at the firm.
