About Us & Our History

Dan McNally who was the original founder of Dan McNally Ltd commenced business in 1958 and contracted in the fields of agriculture and rail decommissioning projects.

Only In the early 70’s did Dan McNally eventually diversify into the Crane Hire Industry and in 1984 the company was incorporated as Dan McNally Ltd. In 1996 the company came under new Management which allowed the integration of heavy Cranage and specialist lift engineering Services.

Since 2000 the company has expanded rapidly, helped by the construction boom of the time and we have been involved in several prestigious projects such as the Spire Project, Boyne Bridge on the M1, Croke Park and many other infrastructure projects.
However the company realised that the levels of construction could not last and in 1999 Dan McNally Ltd received their first Wind Turbine Project which involved using a 400T Crane to erect 600Kw turbines for Vestas. Following on from this, the Company decided to concentrate more of the business on Wind Projects in the UK & Ireland, eventually leading to the purchase of a Demag TC3300 Lattice Crane which resulted in the installation of 10 number Nordex N80 Wind Turbines in Kings Mountain, Sligo, Ireland.

Today Dan McNally Ltd operate cranes up to a capacity of 1200T and our success has taken the company throughout Europe and as far afield as Australia and the Falkland Islands.
