  • I have been a customer of McGraths since I took over the family farm in 2001, as was my father before me. They have supplied me with aggregates, gravel and concrete for all my farm buildings. I have also used their Grolime to maintain correct pH levels, due to their unique location their lime is of a very high standard. In recent years I have been using their Farmcal and Slurrycal cubicle limes. I find that they maintain cows teats in excellent condition and help to produce high quality milk throughout the housing period. I also find they produce very little dust by comparison to other products on the market. McGraths have a thorough knowledge of all the products they supply and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to other farmers.

  • Paddy Farragher has being running an agricultural contracting business for over 52 years and he has being an agent for McGraths since the 1970's delivering and spreading McGraths Grolime in many areas of south Mayo and north Galway.

    "The farmers we deal with who spread McGraths Grolime find a significant improvement in their pasture. There are several key reasons for this- McGraths Grolime is a quality product which tests have shown improve fertilizer availability to the crop. It also improves the root structure of the plant, the drainage and aeration in a well limed soil is better due to more earthworm activity, but more importantly it is the unique fine texture of McGraths Grolime that contributes highly to positive results for farmers. I have working with McGraths over many decades and together we have delivered a prompt and reliable service and have built up a relationship and reputation with many satisfied customers "

  • A massive Thank You to Kevin and all the Team that completed the work on the ball court at Scoil Mhuire, Carna. I spoke to Kevin around this time last year, and what seemed like a very difficult task and possibly unachievable for us due to space restrictions around the school grounds. I am so Thankful and Delighted with the fantastic job McGraths have done at the school. I must compliment the workers on their efficiency and neatness throughout the project which was done in record time!! Some parents didn't even notice they were working at the school today, the job was done so well. So Thank You all very much. Our children will have a great year ahead of fun and play now on a safe surface. Once again, Well Done!

  • At first I was sceptical of the benefits of using Slurrycal but the agitation of the slurry tank in March told its own story. Normally agitation would take 2 – 3 hours from two external points; this year after using Slurrycal the tank was fully agitated after 30 minutes from one agitation point only! That saving in agitation cost and hassle alone makes slurrycal worthwhile for me. The slurry was spread after 1st cut silage and the 1st load out of the tank was the same as the last load- all liquid and consistent. There was no residue left on the grass as it spread evenly and was easily washed into the soil

  • At McHale we produce a range of cutting edge agricultural baling, wrapping and mowing machines. Exports account for over 90% of our sales and our products can be seen working in 55 countries around the world.


    In 2015 we made the decision to expand our main manufacturing plant in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo by 200,000 square feet.  For the floors we worked with McGraths Limestone in Cong who developed a specialised concrete mix incorporating steel fibres for our  finished floors. McGraths supplied up to 500 meters of this specialist concrete per day.  We found McGraths Limestone to be very helpful in the development of the product, professional in their dealing with us and reliable in terms of meeting our strict delivery schedule.  We would have no hesitation in recommending McGraths Limestone based on their reputation and the service they have provided to us.

  • McGraths of Cong have been a supplier to Michael O Malley Tarmacadam Contractors Ltd for a long number of years.  We can only praise their professional , prompt and courteous service.  The quality of their product is outstanding and can be seen in many of our pavement overlay contracts around Mayo and Galway

  • CES Quarry Products Ltd have been manufacturing concrete products and floor screeds for over 60 years in Northern Ireland.


    "For most of this time our volume product has been semi-dry cement screeds. Although the semi-dry cement screed is labour intensive to lay, it is a safe, reliable product, with no compatibility problems or long term quality issues. Then, when calcium sulphate liquid screed (hemihydrate & anhydrite) was brought to the market, offering a fast track screed system, we like the rest of the screed producers started to manufacture it to hold market share. We have many years’ experience supplying and fitting calcium sulphate screeds and have been very diligent dealing with its incompatibles and cross contamination issues. Still we had our problems and when we heard about a new cement based liquid screed (Cemfloor) we were keen to explore its capabilities.   We were invited by McGraths to see the product being installed and to see a few installations that had been completed in 3-4 weeks. I have to admit once we seen Cemfloor being laid and the finished product, we got very excited.   With Cemfloor we are now fully meeting our customers’ floor screed needs without compromise, with no restrictions on where it can be laid! It is not only perfect for underfloor heating systems, it is a real hit in the commercial market for its speed of application. Due to its compatibility with, d.p.m.s, adhesives and levelling compounds, without the fear of bonding failures, it puts the control back in the hands of the contractor. Also, no short term or long moisture problems. Cemfloor has already become a fantastic asset for our business and is truly meeting the needs of our domestic and commercial floor screed customers."

  • I have worked in conjunction with McGraths Limestone for over 10 years installing FlowScreed liquid concrete for finished floors in commercial and residential premises supplying local builders and self builds in the Mayo/Galway area. During this time I have found their service to be second to none. Their staff including drivers, dispatch office and quality control team are well organised, very professional, facilitating and nothing is a problem on site. Deliveries are prompt and nine times out of ten they on time. Quality is of great importance to my business and McGraths material testing lab have always dealt with an issues I have encountered. We have recently collaborated on a new fast drying screed binder Cemfloor and the first 12 months have been a great success and our customers are very happy. I look forward to working with McGraths Limestone in the future!
