“We are third generation building contractors based in Rhode, Co Offaly,” explained Damien.
“My father Thomas is the Managing Director and my mother Kathleen looks after the books for us.

We also have a professional worker in our team, Pat.
“We provide our clients with the full package here – from the work on the green field site at the very start to the complete finished project.”
