Groundworks and drainage specialist R O’Donnell Plant & Civil has filed a notice of intention to appoint an administrator.

The business operates mainly in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire but also has a depot in Limerick.

The Enquirer understands that the firm also supplies plant and labour to the HS2 project.

Around a week ago the firm, which is run by managing director Richard O’Donnell, pulled off some of its jobs, according to site sources.

The Enquirer was unable to reach the firm for comment.
