Once again we welcomed the final year Geoscience students from Trinity College Dublin. Following the positive feedback from
last years visit, 30 students signed up for the trip this year.

As part of their module “Raw Materials in Building”, the field trip allows the students see where it all starts – at our limestone
rock quarry.

The course covers the geological and non-geological aspects of obtaining, processing, analysing / testing and certifying
raw materials in the SR21 / SR16 / SR18 and aggregate masonry concrete blocks. This is something we, at the quarry, deal with daily.

In addition to this there was great interest shown in our state of the art fully automated manufacturing pre-cast plant.
