A Brief History:

In November 1977 Sean Daly opened his doors to the public at 34 Henry Street, Kenmare, Co. Kerry.

On the 1st of February 2004: The real estate section of Sean Daly & Co joined the franchise of Sherry Fitzgerald and the Sherry FitzGerald Daly Kenmare brand was formed. This was an important leap forward for the auctioneering side of the firm.
