Construction output increased between April and June.
The volume of output in building and construction increased by 4.1pc when compared with the preceding period and 10.1pc on the year.
Davy Stockbrokers said output from the sector has now increased 26pc since bottoming out in 2012 but still remains 73.5pc below the peak levels of 2006.
"Overall, these data add to the growing evidence that the construction sector recovery will gather pace this year," said Davy analyst David McNamara.
