About Us

Killarney HR & Payroll was established in 2017 by Damien McCarthy and Michael Spillane. The business originally focused on HR consultancy and Bookkeeping including outsourced payroll services for small and medium sized business owners. In 2021 the business rebranded to HR Buddy.

Damien as a passionate and forward thinking HR professional and member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development (CIPD) recognised the potential for Businesses to align their HR & Payroll functions into one. The client base has since grown rapidly focusing on the HR consultancy & Payroll outsourcing service with online and remote offerings.

Damien is a believer in people and in delivering high performance development cultures within a business. This has led to clients achieving more success and competitive advantage, improved team morale and customer/client satisfaction within their businesses. This is done whilst also ensuring employment law compliance.

HR Buddy is today a Business All-Star Accredited enterprise, and we are one of the few HR service providers who operate payroll along with HR services. This allows businesses to  align their HR/People strategy with their overall Business strategy, and this gives us and the businesses we work with an edge.

People are the most valuable asset in a business and our service dedicates itself not only to compliance but takes it a step further by helping business owners and their people managers streamline their operations into an efficient performance development process.

This saves on time and cost and ultimately achieves better results and success for businesses.
