St Claire’s college is a diocesan co-educational secondary school in Ballyjamesduff in County Cavan.  The school was opened in 1957. With increased demand in numbers, the present school was built and opened in 1969. St. Claire’s in recent years have in excess of 500 pupils and over 30 staff. Tricel Killarney recently replaced the school’s Cold Water Storage Tank to ensure safe drinking water on the school’s safe return after the lockdown period.

Our Client, Cowan Heating and plumbing Ltd. Contacted our sales team in January 2021 to supply the replacement cold water storage tank for St. Claire’s College. The total capacity required to service the college was 20,000 litres. Due to COVID-19 St. Claire’s College was closed for the January period. A speedy resolution was required for this project to have a full water supply for the schools reopening. 

Our client asked for the work to be carried out as soon as possible as the college was expected to open in early February. Tricel Killarney received the order on the 13th of January. Our production team manufactured the GRP hot pressed panels in our Killarney plant, our logistics team then arranged delivery to the school. Tricel Killarney’s skilled site crew attended the site following all Government guidelines and erected the tank in line with the development plan’s schedule.

From receiving the inquiry to installation Tricel Killarney successfully manufactured, delivered, and installed the replacement cold water storage tank within eight days. We specialise in fast turnaround times due to the nature of our business with customer satisfaction being our highest priority.


Our sales and logistics teams offer extensive knowledge in pre-shipment inspections and technical expertise; we work alongside our customers to ensure the process from sales order to delivery is a seamless operation.
