About Us

About Irish Companies

Irish Companies is a fourth-generation family-owned certified women’s enterprise that began serving our Upstate New York neighbors in 1932, when Ralph Irish founded the R.N. Irish Coal Company (read more about Irish Companies history here).

About us

We’ve done a lot of growing since then, expanding through more than eight decades to form Irish Propane and Irish Carbonic — companies that serve our neighbors in Buffalo and Rochester NY, and cities throughout Ohio with:

  • there-whenever-you-need-us service
  • fair and honest pricing
  • problem-solving innovation
  • best-in-class safety standards
