Ashbourne man, Mick Flynn, has been appointed President of the Master Builders and Contractors Association (MBCA).

He is one of the Founding Directors of Flynn, a leading construction and fit-out company based in Dublin and with operations in Ireland, UK and Europe.

The Master Builders’ and Contractors’ Association is the representative Association for firms involved in main and general building contracting. The Association promotes, and represents members’ interests to Government Departments, public and private sector clients and the construction professionals.

“Construction is the heartbeat of the Irish economy and it’s critical we get it reopened as quickly as possible. The previous reopening after lockdown was extremely successful and with our world class Construction Sector C-19 SOP we have shown that the industry can operate safely through this pandemic. Given the ongoing pressures in society for all housing and the importance of supporting multinationals coming here, we need the sector reopened as a priority,” said Mick.
