The Smyth family have been part of the fabric of the Straide Community for many generations and today, our family business, Mullafarry Quarry Ltd is a second-generation company situated in Killala, Co. Mayo.
Mullafarry Quarry was established in the mid-1960’s and initially traded as Smyth & McAndrew Ltd. The Company was involved in the quarrying industry, supplying aggregates to the Public & Private sector in the North, Northwest Mayo & South Sligo areas. In the late seventies, we commenced the manufacture of ready-mix concrete and concrete blocks. In 1988 the then Managing Director, Michael Smyth & his wife May bought out their business partner Desmond McAndrew and commenced trading as Mullafarry Quarry Ltd. The Company extended its range of products to include the manufacture of tarmacadam and asphalt products.
Following the death of Michael Smyth (R.I.P.) in 2000, his family took over the management of the Company and with the recent restructuring have further expanded the business to include Plant Hire and Public Works Contractor.
Mullafarry Quarry Ltd are members of various trade organisations, including Irish Concrete Federation, Irish Asphalt Producers Association, Construction Industry Federation and the Irish Road Haulage Association. We pride ourselves on the manufacture and sale of quality products and are an Approved Quality Supplier of ready-mix concrete, aggregates, road chippings, tarmacadam & asphalt concrete. We were the first privatised company to ascertain the NSAI ISEN206 Certification for concrete production.
We currently employ fifty people locally and continue to serve the Private and Public sector in both North Mayo and South County Sligo. As a local family business, we are committed to supporting our local business community and lend our support and sponsorship to many of the local voluntary Clubs and Organisations active in our Community, including our Sports Clubs, Schools, Church Restoration Project, Community Hall Refurbishment Project, Local Hospice and many others.
