Book Launch: The History of CPA Ireland 1926 – 2016
Dr Martin Quinn and Dr Brid Murphy, DCU Business School, yesterday marked the launch of their book on the history of The Institute of Certified Public Accountants in Ireland (CPA Ireland), titled “The History of CPA Ireland 1926-2016: 90 years accounting for Business“. The book is a practitioner oriented output of on-going research collaborations with CPA Ireland, and charts the foundation and growth of the body.
CPA Ireland is one of the main Irish accountancy bodies representing 5,000 members and students. CPA Ireland CEO, Eamonn Siggins commented “CPA Ireland’s foundation occurred against the backdrop of a newly founded State attempting to recover from a War of Independence and a Civil War which had wrought incalculable damage to the fabric of the country’s economy”.
Today, the CPA designation is the most commonly used designation worldwide for professional accountants and the Institute’s qualification enjoys wide international recognition. Its current membership operates in public practice, industry, financial services and the public sector and CPAs work in 48 countries around the world.
CEO, Eamonn Siggins noted “Ninety years of history is well worth celebrating and on behalf of our membership I want to thank Dr Bríd Murphy and Dr Martin Quinn for placing CPA Ireland’s development and growth in the context of nine decades of change in Ireland”.
