What would it cost to put up a concrete wall that is shuttered, 60ft long, excluding labour

You would need to know the length, height and thickness of wall to get a reasonably accurate amount of materials required to give a reasonably accurate sum.

I have no clue on shutter work or the pricing of that trade.

Assuming 45cm means 45 cubic metres someone needs a new calculator. They're over by around 60%.

For the entire wall? What would that cost?

12m3 would be €11-1200, what about the foundation? Then shuttering and contractor and steel. A very rough guess 6-7k

What is the shed for? Do you need the walls 8-10' high?

No, I got that wrong, it's a sheep shed so probably 5-6ft?

The larger pans now are 10X8. If building 5@ high ideall you need a lad with the old 4X2 pans. 120' long 5'high wall will take about 10M of conc and will cost about 800ish+ vat generally you can reclaim the vat. A lad with small pans might do that for 1500 euro.You will also need a foundation 9'' high bay 2' wide this will take about 5 metres of concrete. Steel should not cost a fortune a few 8X4 sheets of mesh should be good enough if you even bother with it

If you cannot get someone to.shutter it at s reasonable price I would use blocks. 1500 blocks bought and laid i ce labour and materials will cost about 2500 euro

You can hire pans with all the whirle bars etc that you need. Contec in tullow is one place but many others dotted around the country. Just if you are stuck to get someone

Seeing as the shed will only be used as storage and an over flow lambing shed, I'm beginning to think the blocks might be the best cost effective option for me

6" solid blocks with a strong mortar mix and plasticiser would fine .

Precast wall panels are your best option and you will have something that you can drive a loader up against. Seconds can be bought for around 120 each beside me. Ranges from 1200-1500 high. You can take them out then if you want to change the shed.

What's the name of the company you can get the seconds from?

I agree the panels are the job. Installed in a hour or two and you can always take them out in the future if u want. If u are going to be clearing out dung you need something to push up against.
