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.
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.
