Last year was a special one for us.
Notwithstanding the grip Covid-19 had on the industry, and indeed on the country, in 2020, McKeon Group celebrated its 70th year in business. As part of the anniversary celebrations, we collaborated with Ashbourne & District Lions Club to search for local heroes through the www.AshbourneHeroes.ie community campaign; you can read about our celebratory initiatives here: https://mckeon.ie/mckeon-group-celebrates-70-years-in-the-industry/
As a team, we committed to a year of giving back and this theme continues through a series of initiatives and voluntary construction projects. Earlier this month, members of the McKeon charity innovation team gave up their weekend to spruce up Priory Youthreach, which is based in Tallaght Village.
Youthreach is a nationwide State education programme, which, at a local level, provides academic, personal and social support for young people, in a safe and enjoyable manner. Priory Youthreach is run by Paul Curtis and the centre operates on a tight budget. McKeon Group had recently carried out some works for them and our contracts manager Arthur Bennett saw an opportunity to contribute so the team organised a volunteer day of internal painting of the walls to help out.
Huge thanks to all the McKeon team for their contributions and a special word of thanks to The Brass Fox in Tallaght for supporting this initiative and keeping our hardworking team fed for the day!
