Thanks to all who attended our Pointing training this morning. We’d a full house and a very enjoyable session with people from Netherlands(via Sligo), Waterford, Limerick, Kilkenny, Tipp, west Cork and East Cork. Great bunch of people.
Glin Bathing Lodge getting some repairs and Secil Lime Shelter coat in Co. Limerick. Nice job Ben. To all the early morning sea swimmers at the front strand, Youghal, you should get onto the council. You deserve one of these.
Best of luck to Greywood Arts with their new arts and culture centre in Killeagh. We love the colour and texture of this traditional lime harling, using our Secil lime and executed by the talented local plasterer Derek Mangan
Client sends us this today and asked for a recommendation. Yeah, it will need lime pointing and rendering but… its’s so unusual to see a random rubble stack so eroded of the mortar and yet still stable that it’s almost a shame to touch it.
St. Marys Collegiate Church, Youghal. A thousand odd years of history and worship at this place, built centuries before the reformation. With a little care and attention, it will last forever. Nice photo @kieran.mac of the winter frosts.
Bishops Palace in Cobh looking fantastic this winter after full Lime render and Roman Cement repairs and the complete Silicate paint treatment. Meticulous work by Dave Higgins and the Queenstown crew and great vision and design (and photos) by Gareth @jca_architects.
