Happy Retirement

2020 – a new year, a new beginning and so Sunrise Financial Planning continues to transition.  During 2019 our long-term colleague and friend, Teddy Black took the very difficult decision to step back from the business due to ill-health.  Teddy had been with Sunrise from the early days and was instrumental in building our client base in West Cork and the surrounding areas.  Both Teddy and Paddy were well known figures as they drove around the Beara Peninsula meeting clients, and recounting stories of their travels.  As you may know Teddy is a well known Seanachai and will continue his endeavours in this area.

It has been our privilege to work with Teddy over the years – his enthusiasm and loyalty will be sorely missed by all of us.  We wish Teddy the best of luck and continued good health in his retirement days.

Grainne continues to travel to West Cork to meet with our clients, and as always we are contactable in the office.



Lots to celebrate in Sunrise Financial Planning with Gráinne’s recent graduation from UCD.  Gráinne completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning and has now qualified as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™.  We were absolutely delighted to hear her good news as its such a great achievement.   We in the office, and her family, are extremely proud of her.  All her hard work, dedication and early morning coffees have paid off.



Welcome Baby Emma

Great news… new parents Deirdre and Rob are delighted to announce the arrival of baby Emma on 3rd April 2019. Mom, Dad and baby Emma are doing great.


Paddy Ryan (RIP)

It is with great sorrow that we announce the unexpected death of our beloved friend and founder, Mr. Paddy Ryan, on 30 December 2016.

Paddy was incredibly proud of Sunrise Financial Planning and we will miss him greatly. His determination, drive to excellence and can-do spirit as well as his commitment to his clients and Sunrise Financial Planning will inspire and stay with us always.

We extend our deepest sympathy to his family. May he rest in peace.
