Yip that's him. He a rough character. Lol We done abit of work at a primary school in ballymena a while back and he carted a lot of stuff away in that old Volvo. We only ever worked on pattons job once. And it was that Belfast metropolitan collage site in the titanic quarter in Belfast. I counted one day there was 22 diggers working on top of each other. Aye heard of a few men up around here that have been caught up in it. Some scary figures to.

They were a good firm to work to. We had a lot of good jobs with them. Done the ground work to the town hall. The toilets on the strand beach. I think Laurence got most of his money and pulled out. Dmac from cookstown is owed 300 grand of that. He does ground work if uve heard of him.
