Pleased to have started work on the Eureka Secondary School, Kells, Co. Meath

Work started on the long-awaited new school building for Eureka Secondary School in Kells late 2016.

The school will accommodate 800 students.  O’Reilly Concrete were contracted by the Sammon Group to supply, precast walls, hollowcore flooring, precast stairs and columns & beams.  Construction on the site on the Cavan Road is progressing really well, with the building expected to be ready for occupation by the second half of 2017. The current Eureka school, a Post Primary school in Kells, required a new fit for purpose facility.  The new school building at this site will provide 8000m2 of accommodation over 2 levels.

October 20th 2017 update

We are thrilled to see Dún an Rí opening this morning to their pupils who have been in temporary accommodation for the past year. We would like to wish all staff and students the best of luck in the new building. Over 160 pupils moved into Dún an Rí College this morning.

The new secondary school is situated at Turners Hill in the town and the state of the art facility will cater for up to 500 pupils.



Week 28 of the Coláiste Dún an Rí college build, the design of the new college is starting to take shape, exciting times ahead for all the students in 2017.

This is the main pedestrian walkway linking the Main Street in Kingscourt to the school grounds.  The stairs are approximately 34m in overall length and 3.2m in overall width. We have cast recesses in the sides of the stairs for the hand rails. We have also cast recesses in the top of each step for a magna strip to be installed by Ganson. The magna strip is a non – slip piece of material added to the flight by the Ganson. We have provided a precast Beam at each landing level for supporting the stair flight and one side of the landing slab.

A vibrant building industry is vital to the economy and it is also important that businesses supplying material to the construction sector continue to innovate and bring new concepts and products to the market. That is a challenge that O’Reilly Concrete in Kingscourt has been relishing since its arrival on the scene in 1939.

There are over 200 people employed directly in the business with the active involvement of over 100 sub-contractors in spin-off employment such as transport.

They believe that innovation and the strongest in-house design team of any precast concrete company in Ireland is what sets them apart from their competitors.

“We have developed our own Rapid Build Precast Wall Solution, which enables us to erect an ALDI store in seven days, complete schools in 12 weeks and 12-storey apartment blocks, such as Central Park in Leopardstown, in 20 weeks. The complete structure is manufactured in our plant, delivered to site and erected by our fitting crews”, said the managing director Barry O’Reilly.

“We continue to re-invest in our plants and technology with the creation of 62 jobs across our five plants over the past year”, he added. “We have just completed the construction of our own paving slab factory just outside Kingscourt, adjacent to our paving brick factory Barleystone. We are installing the plant and machinery at present and hope to have it up and running by Christmas and be ready for the Spring campaign with a new brochure and new products, including patio slabs with different finishes, colours and textures. Ninety per cent of the products manufactured in this new factory will be exported to the UK”, said Barry.

O’Reilly Concrete manufacture the following products – Rapid Build Precast Buildings, Precast walls, floors, stairs, paving brick, wastewater treatment systems, rainwater harvesting systems, oil/water separators, readymix, block and stone and airtight blocks.

“We have probably built in the region of 40 ALDI stores across Ireland at this stage. The fastest ALDI we did was in Carrickmacross – it was built in seven days”, said Barry.

They have landed major schools projects in Kells, Bray and Wexford. The wall structures that will be used in tees schools are made at their plant on Feahoe, Co Monaghan.

“We use IT Software to regulate the sequencing of our deliveries to major build like a school. We produce by the trailer load and it is dispatched in the sequence that the building is being erected”, explained Barry.

The company is also considering expanding by opening a plant in the UK, though its main production  would always remain in Ireland.
