Tipp based Ryans Cleaning to feature as part of the RTÉ One Day documentary series this January

Tipperary company Ryans Cleaning will feature in an RTÉ One Day documentary titled One Day: How Ireland Cleans Up which will air on RTÉ 1 at 9.35pm on Monday, 14th of January.

The One Day documentary series goes behind the scenes to examine the complex network of services that are essential for life in Ireland today. Filmed at multiple locations over a 24 hour day, each episode highlights one specific industry – Beauty, Cleaning/Waste and Tourism – from the perspective of the people who are expected to deliver the 24/7 service and standard we’ve come to expect.

The Thurles based company is the leading event cleaning contractor in Ireland and the UK and are responsible for cleaning some of the biggest festivals, arenas and stadia on both sides of the Irish sea. Director and Producer Brian Hayes and his crew from the RTÉ TV Documentary Unit accompanied Ryans Cleaning to the All Together Now Festival at the Curraghmore Estate in Co. Waterford in August of last year. They recorded a great deal of footage during the festival where the Ryans Cleaning team were in action with a particular focus on the role and insights of Sinéad Cleary, Senior Operations Manager who has been with Ryans Cleaning for over 15 years. The programme also looks at all aspects of ‘How Ireland Cleans Up’ and other companies nationwide also feature in this interesting portrayal of our cleaning industry.

Speaking of Sinéad’s participation in the documentary, company CEO and Founder Pat Ryan said “All Together Now was a good event for RTÉ to come along to as it was a compact venue and the crowds and weather were extremely well behaved, it was the first year of the event and our first time cleaning the venue so it was not without its challenges, however, Sinéad Cleary is one of our most experienced supervisors and has seen it all before. Nothing really phases Sinéad and she is a stickler for quality cleaning and attention to detail which I hope comes across in the programme. We set the bar exceptionally high in terms of the level of cleaning we offer our clients. This is a rare insight for the public to get a snapshot of the work we do behind the scenes all year round on an international basis, all organised from our HQ here in Thurles.”
