Trip down memory lane: Construction photographs from years past

by | Feb 20, 2022

There is no doubting the very rich and proud history of Ireland’s construction industry and those who work within it.

It has helped shape not only the Irish nation, but most corners of the globe, through the skilled and dedicated people who continue to contribute to the built environment worldwide.

With this in mind, we asked CIF member companies to dip into their photographic archives and share some of the look back photos and memories from the 1990s or before.

From social events to landmark projects, leadership teams, and workers on site, here are some of the images we’ve received to date. Keep them coming!
