Laura & William Donnellan
Founders of IRLG
Laura & William Donnellan are originally from Galway Ireland and ventured on to Vancouver in 2009, where their 6 month working holiday visa quickly turned into a decade of adventure and success, here in beautiful British Columbia.
IRL Construction Ltd. was the first company they founded within only a few short years of moving to Canada. William had owned his own construction company in his early 20's back in Ireland and utilized his trade as a carpenter to build the enterprise from the ground up. Likewise, the pubs that were soon to follow, were also built by William and his incredible team from scratch.
Laura is the HR Business Partner, who had primarily been handling the logistics of the construction business, leading the company to multiple awards, including Best Immigrant Employers in 2017. They now have over 60 employees on their roster, full time. As their construction division expanded, Laura navigated towards her natural inclination for all things creative, by managing the creative strategy and interior design behind all the three pubs.
Both have proudly established multiple companies across Canada and have continued to grow their portfolio across Canada, Ireland and soon the USA.
