19 April 2005 - An Taoiseach Mr. Bertie Aherne, TD opened the Castleknock Hotel and Country Club on Monday 18 April 2005.

Rohcon completed the three storey hotel building comprising 140 bedrooms and 4 suites, a Health and Leisure Centre, which features a 70 metre swimming pool, gymnasium, spa, and aerobics room within a very tight works programme. A number of initiatives were undertaken in order to meet the deadline. These included the use of fully finished high quality bathroom pods, sourced from Italy and alteration to the roof design to allow it to be prefabricated at ground level and lifted complete.

Architects were Cantrell and Crowley and the total floor area is 10,200 square metres.

Mr. Jerry O'Sullivan, director of Rohcon, says: ‘In order to successfully complete this project on a fast track basis, we knew that a real team effort was needed and I am delighted to say that is how it was done.’
