We are delighted to announce that we’ve been awarded the prestigious title of Landscape Contractor of the Year for 2019 and recipient of the Bog Oak Trophy for our construction of the Adare Manor landscape at today’s ALCI Landscape Awards. No only that, but we were also awarded the title of Sports Turf Contractor of the Year for the construction of sports facilities at St Michael’s College in Dublin
The awards ceremony, often referred to as the Oscars for landscape construction, were held today at the Titanic Museum in Belfast and attended by Ireland’s top-flight contracting companies. Pat McCormack, Chairman, ALCI said “This is a hugely deserved accolade for Peter O’Brien & Sons Landscaping Ltd. who have been trailblazers in the Irish landscaping industry for many years. There are very few second-generation businesses in horticulture and the O’Brien’s have shown that through hard work, dedication and an ability to adapt to changing economic conditions, it is possible to achieve great success. The O’Brien’s also give back hugely to the industry by and have trained many of Ireland’s leading landscape contractors. They are well-deserved recipients of the Bog Oak trophy for the fifth time.”
Presenting the award, ALCI Awards Judge and Bord Bia’s Bloom Manager, Gary Graham commented “The delivery of this stunning landscape at Adare Manor is a testament to the skill and experience which Peter O’Brien & Sons Landscaping LTD have in abundance. The sheer scale of this soft landscaping project is something which does not come around very often and the team demonstrated agility and dexterity which allowed them to tackle all of the challenges which they met along the way. The finished estate features a huge amount of clever planting and spectacular mature trees which were sourced and transplanted from Irish nurseries.”
We are so proud with what has been achieved and would like to extend sincere thanks to all the team, our suppliers, contractors and support teams who helped us with both projects.
