The Church Building Experts

  • Saint Columba's church is situated in the ancient town of Swords. Swords Heritage has a museum in the old Carnegie Library building in the town. Swords Castle is being restored and can be visited as the works continue.
  • Slaney Ornamental Plaster & Casting. Ciaran Kelly and company were called in at short notice to repair, and replace where necessary, the damaged and collapsing Georgian plasterwork coving and ceiling in our church in Swords. Using only traditional materials and methods while working to strict conservation and environmental regulations, they did beautiful work and completed it on time and on budget, allowing us to re-open the church.
  • Insight Electrical. Andrew Briggs and company recently completed without a hitch the complex task of rewiring our 200-year-old church.
