DIY SOS: The Big Build, Ireland

DIY SOS: The Big Build, Ireland for RTE – Helping the Parsons Family in Longwood, Co. Meath

We’re big fans of the RTE TV show: DIY SOS : The Big Build Ireland, and the movement behind it. So, the Killeen Engineering team were grateful to be able to answer the call to help the Parsons family in some small way.

Facebook Call out for support

Well organised

The event was well coordinated and organised with Health & Safety induction prior to works commencing. There was no shortage of coffee, cakes and snacks throughout the build, with a tasty lunch provided by our local hotel The Hamlet Court in Johnstown Bridge. Above all, there was such good craic and goodwill shared by one and all.

We’d like to give a big shout-out to Des, Ben, Caitlin Killeen and all the crew who pulled out all the stops to design, measure, fabricate and fit the new gates in Longwood. There was such a great buzz and activity from all suppliers and volunteers from near and far.

Some Photos from the event:

Thursday the 17th of June was the Big Reveal Day.

On the reveal day. all trades, contributors and companies that had donated their time or materials to the project were invited to attend the reveal, and get a few snaps with Baz Ashmawy and team.

Take a look at some of our snaps of the build along with presenters Peter Donegan and Baz:
