The Killybegs office is located at Bruach Na Mara, headquarters of the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation and is a welcome addition to the activities of west Donegal.
The announcement comes in a year when the Ballyshannon based firm has been proactive on many fronts, despite the challenges presented by Covid-19.

The new Killybegs office of Brian J McMullin solicitors is located at Bruach Na Mara, headquarters of the Killybegs Fishermen’s Organisation and is a welcome addition to west Donegal.

Mr McMullin said, “We are absolutely delighted to open in Killybegs and to provide a more convenient base for our friends and clients in the Killybegs area and throughout West Donegal.
“The delivery of quality legal services in a cost-efficient manner has always been, and continues to be, our focus.”
The firm was a finalist at the Irish Law Awards 2019 and provides a wide range of legal services to individual, business and public body clients across Donegal, the North West, Dublin and further afield.
It also provides in-house legal services to Waterways Ireland at that organisation’s headquarters in Enniskillen.

Special anniversary
This week is also particularly special, as the firm celebrates the 100th anniversary of the commencement of Brian McMullin's grandfathers practice as a solicitor in Donegal.
Indeed, it is exactly 100 years to this day, June 24, 1921 that VP McMullin's announcement appeared in the pages of the Donegal Democrat newspaper.

Its lineage since then, has been equally impeccable.
The Ballyshannon based firm incorporates VP McMullin (Ballyshannon), Brittons, Ramage & Britton and Lipsett & Ramage. The Ballyshannon practice traces its origins to 1899 and is currently celebrating 122 years in practice.

The firm merged with VP McMullin in 1991 and that practice was established in 1921 by Vincent P. McMullin in Donegal Town. 
Under the longstanding stewardship of Brian McMullin, former Partner in VP McMullin the practice continues to evolve and embrace technology and innovation for the benefit of its clients. He acquired the Ballyshannon practice in December 2018. 

The team
Brian McMullin is assisted by solicitors Jane Flannery, Orla Moran, David Royston and a very dedicated support team.
Jane Flannery worked for a number of years in Dublin gaining experience in Conveyancing, Litigation and Probate. She then returned to her native Donegal working initially in the Letterkenny office of VP McMullin before joining the Ballyshannon practice.
