Lorna lives in Newry with her husband and three young children.

"I left the London rat race several years ago and moved home, so I wanted to combine my previous experience of managing corporate clients with an industry where I could actually help families ​just like mine.

Having moved and extended the family, I have first hand knowledge of the frustrations and difficulties of choosing an insurance provider or mortgage lender without being confident if I chose the best one. 

That is my passion. Helping my clients by minimising the stress whilst ensuring they have the best policy or mortgage that fits their needs."  


We have access to a wide selection of lenders and insurers. 

This enables us to compare different available products to ensure we find the optimal mortgage or insurance cover that best fits the needs of you and your family.

“Lorna was a fantastic help to us for buying our home. Nothing was ever too much bother. Lorna explained everything step by step so nothing was too overwhelming for us. I would highly recommend Lorna at Manley Financial so professional and helpful"

“We are so grateful to Lorna for all of her assistance in buying our new home. Nothing was too much trouble, she helped us navigate so through many tricky extra difficulties caused by the pandemic and was never more than a phone call away. Not only was she extremely approachable and professional, but she always went the extra mile to make sure we understood every step of the process. We would happily recommend Lorna to anyway and look forward to working with Manley financial in the future."

Would recommend her to anyone looking for a mortgage, insurance or any sort of financial advice. She will go the extra mile for you. Thank you for everything Lorna."

“Lorna provided a fantastic service for us as first time buyers. She guided us through the mortgage process and helped us to sort life insurance. This was a long process for us during lockdown, however, Lorna kept in regular contact to keep us updated with any developments. She was efficient, professional, and extremely easy to work with.


We couldn’t have asked for more from her. It was a pleasure to work with Lorna and we look forward to working with her again in the future. Would definitely recommend!"

Ted - October 2019

"When we needed to secure a new, affordable and beneficial life assurance policy in our later years Lorna was there to help.  We were offered a number of options, given time to choose under no pressure with excellent guidance and support throughout the whole process.  Lorna not only delivered a professional service but managed to do so in a gracious and hassle-free manner that made the whole experience more satisfying than we ever imagined.  Would we recommend Lorna to others?  Yes, we certainly would endorse her services – without hesitation."

Life Insurance & Re-Mortgage

"I needed to review my mortgage and my life insurance policies and I hadn’t the knowledge and confidence to research and renew online. I called Lorna who quickly provided me with that knowledge and confidence.

I got a much better deal by changing both policies and the service I received was of the highest quality.

I highly recommend their services"

“We both work during the day so Lorna was so helpful and happy to meet when we could make it not like my local bank. Always kept us up to date, everything explained to me in a jargon free way and was a lot easier than we first thought.

I am so relieved that our cover is up-to-date. I'll definitely be calling Lorna when I'm ready to remortgage.”
