About Keane McEllin

Michael Keane established Michael Keane & Co., Solicitors in his home town of Claremorris in November 1974 having graduated from University College Dublin in 1972 and from the Law School of the Law Society of Ireland in 1973. He went on to acquire the practices of the late F.W. Conway, Solicitor of Claremorris and the late P.J. McIntyre, Solicitor of Kiltimagh. From the office on James Street, Claremorris, Michael Keane & Co. Solicitors provided legal services for over 46 years in the areas of Conveyancing, Probate and Wills, Litigation and Family Law matters (see our services here).


After completing her Law Degree in Trinity College Dublin in 2010, Michael’s daughter Alison Keane joined the practice as an Apprentice Solicitor in 2011 and was admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in 2013. Alison became Principal of the firm of Michael Keane & Co., Solicitors upon Michael Keane’s retirement in 2020.

Patrick McEllin Solicitor commenced practice in Claremorris in 1939 and was one of the most prominent and highly regarded lawyers in the West of Ireland. His son Ward McEllin continued to grow the practice until his retirement in late 2021 when the practice merged with Michael Keane & Co., Solicitors and now continues under the name Keane McEllin Solicitors. The firm operates from the original Keane office on James Street, Claremorris, County Mayo. Keane McEllin Solicitors continues to provide services to a substantial client base offering a wide range of legal services based on decades of experience, expertise and discretion.
