Testimonial

I own and manage a busy creche and Montessori School in Swords, Co. Dublin. I have been using the services of Canavan and Byrne for many years. They provide an excellent service and have kept me on the right track many times when it comes to managing my staff team. The service they provide is highly professional, personalised and is always delivered with such good humour. Whether its employment policies/contacts or simply advice on a specific issue they are always at hand. Canavan and Byrne have provided all my HR and childcare policies. I could not recommend them highly enough.
