Athena Contracts – Dublin Flooring Specialists

tom clements, peter donegan, sean conville, inis mor temple street 2015

You might remember way back in April Peter and Sean (and non local Tom) hit the island of Inis Mór to do the annual Temple Street Half Marathon ?

To pay for that sold the ads that you see down the right hand side of the website for 100 euro a pop (for 6 months) for which we are very very greatful – take a scroll through, ye might see something you like and tell ’em we sent you.

Anyhow’s, one of the fine folks that also chipped in a few bob towards that but a bit later than the rest was the crew at Athena Contracts who do pretty much anything that can be laid as a flooring surface.

Need new floors ? Give them a blast. And in the meantime, thanks lads. Mucho gusto.
