Considered the single greatest social disaster of 19th century Europe, the Great Irish Famine of the 1840s decimated the island of Ireland, when in excess of two million people, almost one quarter of the entire population, either died or emigrated. The National Famine Museum at Strokestown tells the story of this tragic chapter of Irish history through the words and stories of the very people who experienced it.

Building Ireland Magazine
Ryan Structural Steel Services Ltd. specialises in commercial structural steel detailing, fabricating and erecting, combining cutting-edge expertise, vast experience and high quality workmanship to deliver exceptional solutions to major projects nationwide. We travelled to the company’s state-of-the-art detailing facility in Westport, County Mayo and caught up with founder / MD Des Ryan to find out more about this outstanding operation.
Since its inception in 2004, Ryan Structural Steel Services Ltd. has developed into one of Ireland’s premier commercial structural steel specialists, providing unrivalled detailing, fabrication and erecting solutions to a vast range of commercial and industrial projects for a Who’s Who of clients throughout Ireland and the UK. Based in County Mayo, the company runs its own sophisticated detailing department, working on STRUCAD machines and drawing out the individual elements that go into fabricating raw steel, as well as supplying their own steel erecting crew to work on site. CE-certified structural steel (BS EN 1090-2 and Execution class 2) is used on all projects and Ryan Structural Steel Services Ltd. has an unblemished track record in delivering projects on time, within budget and to exact specification. This is why demand for their services continues to soar and the future is looking extremely bright for the company.
“Our business model seems to work and we are happy to continue with it,” notes founder Des Ryan. “We have enjoyed growth and weathered the downturn because of the way we have structured our business. We don’t have huge overheads or machinery sitting idle, so when the downturn came we were able to just turn off the computers and wait it out. When things started to pick up again, ourselves and Regans Structural Steel were on it first, having secured the CE-mark, and we have been extremely busy ever since.” All fabricating is carried out in partnership with the aforementioned Michael Regan of Regans Structural Steel in Strokestown, County Roscommon, while Ryan Structural Steel Services Ltd. focus on detailing and erecting, each of which can also be offered as standalone services. Over the past twelve years, Ryan Structural Steel Services Ltd. has offered it expertise in steel detailing and erection to the full spectrum of developments including schools, hospitals, hotels, community centres, shopping centres etc.
Completed projects include Silverbridge Shopping Centre in Claremorris, and the Connacht Gold Superstores in Westport and Sligo as well as OPW work at Scoil Naisiunta Uachtar Ard, Scoil Phádraig Westport, Scoil Bhríde Primary School in Edenderry, St Brendan’s in Belmullet and Athlone Community College. They are also experts in floor /roof decking, delivering many major projects including 1,600 square metres of flooring at Roscommon County Hospital, where they also did all the steelwork and steel detailing when the building was given a new extension in 2014.
Ryan Structural Steel Services Ltd. worked on the engineering block at NUIG, where they also did all the steelwork on the new Life Course Studies Building and the detailing and erecting on the Human Biology Building. Other healthcare projects completed to the highest standards include Mayo Medical Academy, St Anne’s Special School in Merlin Park, Galway, a 75-bed extension to the maternity wing at University Hospital Galway (including 4,500 metres squared of deep decking flooring) and Primary Care Centres in Castlebar and Blanchardstown, while commercial structural steel solutions were also provided recently for the OPW on projects such as Pearse’s Cottage Interpretive Centre in Ros Muc, Galway, Roscommon County Council offices, Solas Galway Picture Palace and community centres across Mayo and Galway.
Over the years, Ryan Structural Steel Services Ltd. have worked alongside all the leading main contractors in Ireland including Purcell Construction, BAM Ireland, Careys, JJ Rhatigan, etc. and newer firms like Kesel Construction and Monami Construction in Galway. Some of the most high-profile non-OPW projects that Ryan Structural Steel was engaged on of late include all steel and decking on a seven-storey extension to the North Star Hotel on Amiens Street, a bridge at Turnberry Golf Course in Scotland and the supply of 21 crane ties for HTC WOLFFKRAN in London. They are also about to do some steelwork for Douglas & Stewart Builders at the world-famous Ardfin House on the Isle of Jura, Scotland.
“All the detailing is done here in our state-of-the-art new office, which was built at the start of the year. Regans then fabricate the steel and our lads bring it to the site and erect it,” Des notes. “We try not to overstretch ourselves and we tend to pick and choose the projects we get involved in. At the moment, we’re also doing Bloomfield Avenue apartments in Dublin for Edward Holdings as well as luxury houses in Clifden and Achill.
“We’ll keep going as we are and hopefully get bigger,” the Mayo man concludes. “The new offices have allowed us to take on extra staff, including a new detailer and a couple of steel erectors, and we also intend to increase our management capabilities to facilitate the continued growth of the business.
“We have a good team of very experienced people here and we prioritise quality over quantity. As such, we tend to get a lot of repeat customers and our aim is to keep them.”
