Ardmac works to bring communities together and support a number of non profit organisations in areas which we operate, below are the highlights of our most recent partnerships. Our approach is to ensure that Ardmac gives back to the communities in which we operate.

Volunteer Project – Ronald McDonald House
In 2019, Ardmac refurbished the children’s play area at Ronald McDonald House in Crumlin in Dublin.
Volunteers spent the afternoon painting and upgrading the play area while a team hosted lunch for families at the house. The day long event saw the children’s playground transformed and the addition of a new safety flooring and repainted area for all families to utilise.
