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.”

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.
