LHK Group is a Leinster-based general insurance and financial planning advisory firm serving commercial and personal clients, nationally. Strong client relationships and best in class, impartial advice are the hallmarks of our business.
LHK Group is a General Insurance and Financial Planning advisory firm led by Colm Kelleher in his capacity as Managing Director. We are proud of our heritage; a third generation, family owned business originating in Dundalk, County Louth where Kelleher Insurance was established by Colm Kelleher’s grandfather, Myles Kelleher, in 1938.
The business has grown over the years, both organically and via the acquisition of like-minded, Irish owned insurance brokerages. In 2013, MJ Kelleher & Sons acquired LHW General Insurance Brokers which led to the rebranding of the combined business to form LHK Group, one of the leading, independently-owned insurance brokers in Leinster. The Financial Planning business, LHK Financial, is led by Conail Flynn who joined LHK in April 2019 having spent the previous 17 years of his career with Grant Thornton and prior to that, he worked for a number of pension and actuarial consultancy firms both in Ireland and in Scotland. He has acted as a trusted adviser to a wide variety of corporate and professional clients for over 25 years.
More recent acquisitions include the sale of Richardson Insurance Solutions and The Insurance Shop to LHK Group in 2022. These business share our priority to protect our clients’ interests and ensure that we provide solutions which they can trust, and which give peace of mind and security.
LHK Group is recognised as a market leader in providing risk advice and insurance placement services for commercial and corporate clients across Ireland. LHK Group is a member of the Guaranteed Irish community and the Family Business Network in Ireland.

Corporate Social Responsibility
“We extend our collaborative spirit beyond our business”
It is our aim at LHK Group to make a difference, both in our work for our clients and through our involvement in charitable and community activities, both at home and abroad.
Some of our recent CSR initiatives include:
Focus Ireland Charity Cycle 2022
The LHK teams across both offices in Dublin and Drogheda completed a charity cycle in aid of Focus Ireland on Friday 21st October 2022. We set out to reach a combined distance equivalent to the length of Ireland on fixed bikes (486km) and are proud to report that we hit almost twice the target at 931km on the day!
Focus Ireland works with people who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of losing their homes across Ireland.
Temple Street Children’s Hospital 2021
Children’s Health Foundation raises vital funds to support sick children and their families in Children’s Health Ireland hospitals and urgent care centres in Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly. In July 2021 the LHK team, whilst working remotely during the Covid pandemic, powered the streets of their local community to reach a collective distance of 150km over the course of a 12 hour period, raising over €3,000 for this deserving charity.
Based in Drogheda, County Louth, the Boyne Fishermen’s Rescue and Recovery Service provides a 24 hour emergency rescue service along the River Boyne, 365 days a year. Our LHK team presented a cheque to one of the volunteers in December 2020.
The LHK team in our Dublin office participated in a steps challenge fundraising activity in late 2020 to raise much needed funds for Wicklow Five Loaves, a homeless and disadvantaged charity in Bray, County Wicklow.
The LHK Cycling team (Keith Young, Philip Finegan, Graham Hohn, Gillian Linn, David Gibson and Lisa Mc Cabe) completed the 140km charity cycle from Dublin to Wexford on September 16th, 2017. The team represented both offices and raised over €3,500 for The Peter Mc Verry Trust. We wish to sincerely thank all those who contributed to our fundraising drive which included donations from clients, insurer partners, friends and suppliers.
We have been liaising with Gardai over the past number of years to raise funds to stock and distribute Christmas Hampers. In Christmas 2015, we raised funds from both clients and insurers alike to cover the cost of supplying over 70 hampers and food vouchers which were distributed to disadvantaged families in the Bray, Bluebell, Tallaght and Drogheda areas. These were distributed by the community Gardai in these areas because we felt that due to their regular community liaison activities, the Gardai could readily identify families who were genuinely struggling day to day. The feedback was enormous. A family receiving a Christmas hamper from their local Garda served 2 purposes:
a) it addressed an immediate need for food at Christmas and,
b) it strengthened the relationship between the affected families (and community) and the Gardai.
