Applying texture, colour and tone since 1957 are a leading house painting, decorating and refurbishment company

Who We Are A Family Run Business, the brainchild of Shay Lally, culminates his experience working for Lally & White as a painter and site manager, his training in D.I.T. as a quantity surveyor, a period working with an interior fitout and refurbishment contractor in Dublin, many years experience working in private practice across Ireland and the U.K. as a commercial manager, and his sales marketing experience obtained from the Mobile Music School.

However, our origins stem back to 1957 when Shay’s father, Jimmy Lally, began to serve his time as a painter decorator with Tracey’s of Stoneybatter.

Upon completion of the apprenticeship and working as a chargehand for Tracey’s, Jimmy went on to form Lally & White Painting Contractors. Lally & White quickly established themselves as a leading painting company in the 1970s.
