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.

We're looking forward to the upcoming long weekend! See our Easter Opening hours below.
You don’t need to be a football player to know what a fantastic resource The Neale GAA club and pitch is in our parish for players of all ages from Cong, Cross and The Neale.

It’s fair to say that everyone has great memories associated with the pitch, from participating in training, summer camps or community games, to cheering on friends and family in their matches, and the more recent ‘Ireland Lights Up’ walks!

As the main sponsor of the club we were delighted to work in partnership with The Neale GAA team to help enhance this wonderful community amenity by giving the car park a new fresh look. 

On this project we completed all the drainage works and installed all light ducting for car park lighting in the future, marking out 90 car parking spaces ensuring that the pitch can be enjoyed for many more years to come!
