The principal activities of Dalika Ireland are the provision of managed energy, utilities services, operation of combined heat and power plants and lighting installation and maintenance in public areas.

According to the directors' report "the directors are pleased with the performance of the group".

Four other directors along with Mr Gilroy - who also won an All-Ireland winner's medal as a player in 1995 - served during the year and the figures show that directors' remuneration, including pension payments increased last year by 10pc from €522,634 to €578,411.
