Oliver Reilly Ltd. was founded in 1963 by Oliver Senior. During his first year of operation, he undertook one single funeral. Undeterred, he slowly and steadily built a reputation for reliability and trustworthiness. To this day, these principles form the solid foundation of this family-run business.
In 1975 Oliver’s son Sean took over, moving the business forward, by increasing the number of funeral homes to expand the area served to cover most of North Kildare including Prosperous, Clane, Kilcock, Maynooth, Coill Dubh, Robertstown, Allen, Kilmeague, Donadea, Staplestown, Sallins, Straffan, Newtown, Caragh and some parts of Dublin.
In 1999 Sean’s son Paul joined the business, after graduating from The McGowan School of Embalming, Ballina, Co. Mayo. Equipped with modern techniques and traditional undertaking practices, Paul could view the business from a fresh perspective and today manages the business.
