C-Field Constructing the Dream

C-Field Construction leave no stone unturned for Field of Dreams.

We may have been quiet online recently but only because we have been really busy on site. The excitement is mounting every day as the plan takes shape before our eyes under the expert and careful eye of C-Field Construction Site Foreman, Gerry Ryan. Gerry, seen with our own Ray O’Callaghan, and his team have been fantastic – a pure pleasure to work with and seem to be enjoying helping the dream unfold as much as we are. As you can see from the image, the construction work is very nearly complete and it seems an excellent time to thank C-Field Construction for their huge support of this project. Míle buíochas leis an bhfoireann ar fad.
