We are an Irish-based construction company specialising in precast concrete. We have been in construction business for 80 years. O’Reilly Brothers Ltd. was formed in the early 1930s as a result of increased local building activity.

In addition to its core products of concrete paving bricks, Barleystone manufactures a permeable paving which is designed to meet the demands and standards to reduce flood and pollution risk. Management recognised that manual laying production process methods being used by competitors were highly inefficient and very labour-intensive. The Company has invested â‚¬10M since 2008 in a new state of the art manufacturing facility in Co. Cavan that has the capacity to produce 5,000 m2 of brick per day. The innovative production method used by Barleystone facilitates the laying of the bricks by machine greatly reducing the costs of the final product.

Development of New Product Ideas
The Group is continuously researching new products, increasing range of specifications, developing new products and enhancing usability and believes these new introductions to their product lines account for approx 10% of sales.
The O’Reilly Group already have a strong, professional, experienced management team in place to manage all areas of the business. The management team spans the 3 group companies. Key personnel who have responsibility for all 3 companies include Financial Controller, Credit Controller, Quality Controller, Health & Safety Officer, Transport & Logistics Manager, Engineering & Design department and the Sales team. Key personnel are encouraged to undertake ongoing development and training courses.
The Group philosophy is that they are selling technology not just concrete. They have invested heavily in design software and in training staff over recent years and have the skills to design, draw and detail production schedules for customers, which most other precast manufacturers don’t have.
