" Thanks very much Alison for doing the archaeological monitoring for our new house build. Alison was very professional and easy to deal with. We had to change the day of monitoring last minute due to bad weather and this was no problem at all. Thanks again Alison! "
" Alison & her colleague Vera completed an archaeological report which we required as part of planning permission for a new house in County Galway. They were professional, knowledgeable, approachable & completed the work in timely fashion. Highly recommended. "
