They don't have to advertise. They don't sell retail. The don't sell to the public. Their largest customers are the Office of Public Works, every County Council and City Council in the country.
Large contractors and civil engineering concerns.
Any advertising they would do will be found in trade publications.

They will throw the odd sop of a full page in the national press once or twice a year, to keep the wheels oiled.

They do sell retail, they have retail centres all over the country that nobody knows about.

I stand corrected.
My knowledge data base is way out of date.

The retail aspect is new to me, but I see they have the same monopolistic attitude.


"Roadstone Wood is Ireland's leading supplier of building products and has a unrivalled reputation for quaility and customer service."

You'd think the name might appeal to gay builders and decorators...

I know Roadstone.

I hadn't heard of Roadstone Wood

It's such a logical, organic expansion.

I read something today about Albert Camus, which was written because France has largely ignored the centenary of his birth, and Africa has largely ignored him more generally.

I have never read anything by him, and always had the impression that he was a 'hard' writer who didn't write stuff for ordinary people. But I don't know what I have that impression.

So, I am crowd-sourcing a reading decision: should I read something by Camus, and if so what?

Yes, the name is.

The expansion into selling their products retail was a good move I would think?

The Myth Of Sisyphus, an essay, readily available online.

"There is but one serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy."
