We Have Moved!

ReActors has moved its office to brand new digs! 

It's with heavy hearts that we leave behind our home of the last 19 (!) years at Eden Quay. We are very excited, however, to be relocating to 30 Wicklow Street, where we'll be just down the hall from our illustrious fellow co-ops, Castaway and Frontline! 

We can be found in our new home (pictured) from tomorrow (Monday). Our phone number remains the same, but should there be any teething problems with the landline in the coming days, you can catch us on our mobile - 085 8826440.

Here's to the next 19 years!
