On Friday 5th August we organised an ice cream van to visit all our precast production plants and offices in Ireland. This is just a small token of appreciation we wanted to give our staff to thank them for all their hard work.

It was great to see all the smiling faces and we are glad they enjoyed it!

New O’Reilly Group Van Fleet

This year, the O’Reilly Group have upgraded our van fleet to nine new 2022 vans all provided by Western Motors Drogheda.

The new O’Reilly Group Van Fleet are driven by sales representatives and project managers across the Group who are needed for site visits on a regular basis.

Lower carbon emissions

The new O’Reilly Group van fleet allows us to keep our carbon emissions significantly lower as the new 2022 engines, featuring AdBlue, has substantially dropped the level of nitrogen oxide which are released into the atmosphere. At the O’Reilly Group, we are determined in reducing our CO2 emissions and ensuring our vehicles and machinery are kinder to the environment.

Supporting Wind Energy Development in Ireland

Also featured in the background, are just 5 of the Windfarms which we have provided our Ready-Mix Concrete and stone to including:

  • Bindoo Windfarm
  • Mountain Lodge Windfarm
  • Gartnaneane Windfarm
  • Teervurcher Windfarm
  • Raragh Windfarm.

We are also involved in the development of Taghart Windfarm which is currently under construction.

We are delighted to have been part of these projects as wind energy is a vital and clean source of energy, which again, is significantly better for our environment.

The O’Reilly Group received the Ecocem Ireland Carbon Saving Certificate from 2021.

We are absolutely delighted to say that we have reduced our carbon output by up to 6,444 tonnes last year.

The entire Group along with our Environmental Team have worked tirelessly throughout 2021 to reduce our carbon footprint which we can say has been successfully achieved.

Being one of Ireland and the UK’s largest concrete manufacturer, it is very important that we use reduced carbon concrete in all our precast products and projects, whilst maintaining the highest quality.

Keep an eye out on our socials for more carbon saving initiatives that our Environmental Team will be implementing throughout the year. Our goal is to become a zero-carbon concrete manufacturer. Barleystone Paving and all at the O’Reilly Group look forward to seeing our carbon savings increase and our carbon footprint decrease in 2022.
