Declan’s primary area is the agency end of the business which is predominantly the retail and investment markets. He is a fully qualified Chartered Surveyor and a member of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland, where he sits on the Commercial Agency Committee and The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor where he is a registered valuer.
Having spent a number of years advising on all kinds of retail developments he has since acted for a large number of both retail and investment clients including Donnybrook fair, O’Briens Wines, Natural Bakery, IMC, Irish Life, Aviva, and Hibernia REIT.
Declan is a self-confessed deal junkie. His success rate in converting deals is what sets him apart as he never gets complacent that a transaction is complete until it is fully executed.
A naturally outgoing and optimistic individual, dealing with people is his favourite part of the business. Having dabbled with rugby in his younger years, he moved onto a short lived stint as a lead guitar player, before this gave way to triathlon. In fact, it is with that sport that his mid-life crisis kicked into full swing.
Having competed and completed a number of events including a full distance Ironman, Declan was, prior to Conor’s arrival, the self-proclaimed “athlete” of the firm. He now reluctantly accepts he is a distant 2nd.
Not that I can think of. Must work on that.
Muckross House – although I think it’s more to do with the association than the building.
I’m going to assume I can’t say my wife or family. So Ghandi or Billy Connolly. Maybe one either side. Just for balance!
Hawaii I think. So many places I’d like to go to though – Iceland, Alaska, Brazil, Chile, Austrailia, Columbia – list goes on.
Rocky – gonna fly now by Bill Conti – cheesy I know
A big healthy salad. Whatever it is you’ll end up sick of it so may as well make sure it’s good for you.
Matt Damon – my wife likes him!!!!
Lots really. I’m going to say Star Wars but Dumb and Dumber, Wedding crashers, Indiana Jones and Good Will Hunting are up there
Depends on the mood. Probably cycling but needs to be good weather. Guitar better for chilling.
To always have a bucket list.
The fact that it’s a village!
Lego – loved lego.
Summer – Long evenings, better weather (note I didn’t say good) and quiet roads.
France – they have everything, chic fashion capital, Riviera, mountains, skiing, wine, surfing. Very spoilt!
Jimi Hendrix – Woodstock
Air!!! Actually no. Sleep. Wait no, Food. Air, Sleep and Food.
A skiing one or one with exploring and adventure. At the very least an active one. I don’t do well lying around the place. I think it’s probably an illness.
Dublin – only one where I know where I’m going
