Roadstone sponsors Trowel Ready Mortar for the 2019 National Bricklaying Final

Roadstone was delighted to sponsor Trowel Ready Mortar for the 2019 National Bricklaying Final at Ireland Skills Live in the RDS.

“The mortar was a success, the trucks arrived on time each morning.  The consistency and workability of the mortar was second to none..” Brian Conville, Ireland Skills Live

Congratulations to the overall winner Jason Shanahan and all of those who took part in the competition.

“The Roadstone TRM mortar at the National Skills Competition was ideal for the brickwork project we had to build, the mortar was nice and workable and had a nice creamy consistency to it which made building the project just that bit easier for us. It was very consistent when going off which made it very easy for us to time the pointing of the brick in the competition this allowed us to build as much as we could and yet still be able to point up the brickwork to our desired finish.

The mortar when pointed was very aesthetically pleasing to the eye and this allowed us to get as much points for the overall appearance of our projects in the competition. Overall the mortar supplied was perfect for the job at hand and I could definitely see myself using more of the Roadstone mortar for future jobs”.

 – Jason Shanahan, 2019 National Bricklaying Competition Winner

Jason Shanahan, 22 year old from Cork, completed the Phase 4 and 6 of his apprenticeship in TUDublin formerly DIT.

There was a total of six competitors in the 18 hour competition.  The aim of the exam was to test their ability to read and understand a drawing along with the basics of bricklaying i.e. rang, gauge, measurements, level, plump, details and the overall visual look of the job.

This was made a lot harder due to the pressure that comes with competition and being watched by large crowds including the President of Ireland Michael D Higgins, who made sure to inspect the high level of workmanship during his visit to the event.
