Our Name

Around 1250 the ‘gallόglaich’ left the Western Isles of Scotland to seek glory and fortune in strife torn Ireland.  Without the protection of these ‘gallόglaich’, no Irish chief could hope to stay in power.  In war, they formed his elite vanguard; in peace, they acted as his bodyguards and enforcers of his will.

Times have changed but, certain values are timeless, since 1999 we have sought to apply the very best of the Gallowglass values of leadership, strength, courage, presence and loyalty together with dedication to service in our approach to business.

These core values together with the progressive approach of Gallowglass Security continue to drive our growth so that we have a presence throughout all parts of the UK and are set to expand into Europe.

Mission statement

Our mission is to deliver excellence in the provision of security services to our clients.

All operations are professionally planned by skilled personnel, following a thorough evaluation of our client’s requirements.

They are executed by highly trained security officers, who are well led; motivated and disciplined. It is a defining characteristic of Gallowglass that all assignments are carried through in a positive and flexible manner.  These qualities assist us in our ambition to define standards, for the sectors in which we operate.

The high standards that we set ourselves are achieved through dynamic and experienced leadership. We empower our staff and encourage them to take ownership of their role in order to develop it and themselves to their full potential.

All staff understand their valued contribution in the process of service delivery to our clients. We recruit from diverse backgrounds as this extends the range of talent and services available to you.

This has forged a unique Gallowglass “esprit de corps” that is characterised by a determination to complete all assignments to the highest standards
