The company is based in his home village of Dromod, Co Leitrim, a Tidy Towns-winning fishing village beside Loughs Bofin and Boderg, which are threaded by the River Shannon.
Many members of the workforce he hired are still working with the company over forty years later. When he retired, his son Gavin took over as Managing Director.
With four decades of experience, the ICS team have a deep understanding of everything to do with furnishing churches and cathedrals: the variety of spaces and settings, the requirements, the sensitivities, the need to harmonise with widely varied architectural settings and details, use of the right materials, the manufacturing process, transport, installation, and so on.
The company’s master craftsmen, with the help of the latest computerised technology, manufacture the furniture in our state-of-the-art factory.

WHO WE WORK WITH
We’ve completed nearly 3,000 projects throughout Ireland and the UK – from the Outer Hebrides down to the Isle of Wight. We’ve also completed work in the US and in Brisbane, Australia.
Our clients consist of any religious denomination or organisation operating a place of worship.
We have completed hundreds of major renovation or re-organisation projects for small and large churches and cathedrals, including 10 cathedrals in Ireland and 7 in England and Scotland – from St Patrick’s and Christ Church in Dublin, St Andrew’s Cathedral in Glasgow and St Anne’s Cathedral in Leeds to St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York and St Mel’s Cathedral, Longford (given the ‘Largest Restoration Project in Western Europe’ award).
The design of the furniture was crucial to the whole project and Gavin took the time to understand our needs and design and deliver the right product for us.
