Gameball was founded by Willie Ryan in November 2011. Willie is a Craftsman by trade and has over 25 years experience in the industry.
Willie worked as a Forman in a local Joinery for a number of years. Due to his innovative flare he always held a certain unease and desire to design and create unique pieces. Utilizing wood as his tool he brought this idea to life. Willie set up his own business in 1999 and began to design and build bespoke staircases, which in turn lead him to create his new product Gameball. It is an Irish family run business where Elaine his wife also works by his side.
Situated in the South East of Ireland in County Wexford and surrounded by the beauty of the rugged coastline and Irish landscape has without doubt helped to inspire Willie. In addition to his expansive wealth of knowledge in design along with his intricate attention to detail together with his eye for perfection lead him to creating customized corporate presentations, wedding gifts, retirement gifts and birthday presents to name but a few.
Willies passion for sport fueled his ambition to create an authentic Irish handmade treasured gift in recognition of the important role everyone plays in sport. Each Gameball piece is made from the finest hardwood sourced where possible from sustainable Irish Woodland.
Each piece of wood is hand picked for the finest grain and character allowing each piece to have its own signature and story to tell. Due to the uniqueness of each gift and the personalized inscriptions makes this not only an inspiring gift but a heirloom to be passed down through the generations.
Handcrafted Gifts to last lifetimes – 100% Irish.
