CRH said yesterday that earnings lagged in the four months to the end of April due to a “tough start” to the year at its European operations, which were beset by the effects of cold winter weather.
Representatives of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign voiced their concerns again this year over CRH’s 25pc stake in Israeli cement firm Mashev.
The organisation has been calling on CRH for a number of years to sell its holding in the business.
