“We were the only company in Ireland to have made the list of finalists so we were already feeling like winners. However, to take home the main prize and be named the Most Dynamic Sub-Contractor is a genuine thrill for us and we’d like to thank our work-force for their considerable role in making it happen”, said Richard.
