McKeon Stone - Quarrymasters and Stone Masons


Summer Visitors at Threecastles Quarry

Sand martins are small birds, looking rather like their relative the house martin, who usually nest in colonies, in burrows which they excavate in sandy cliffs. This year, we were amazed to see that a flock of them had made their home in a pile of limestone dust at our quarry.

Michael Cusack Statue - A National Sporting Hero is Honoured

At McKeon Stone, we are very pleased to be associated with a new tribute to a hero of the sporting world. Michael Cusack (Mícheál Ó Cíosóg), the founder of the Gaelic Athletic Association, is being commemorated with a statue carved from our beautiful Kilkenny Blue Limestone, which will stand at the entrance to Cusack Park in Ennis, County Clare. The Park is the home of the Clare Gaelic Athletic Association.

Richard Scott is a well-known Irish independent curator and cultural entrepreneur, based in Cork, who organises exhibitions of works by sculptors as well as a wide range of other events. We at McKeon Stone are honoured to offer him our support with his annual exhibition in the grounds of Ballymaloe House in Shanagarry, County Cork.

Facebook's huge new data processing centre, currently under construction in Clonee, County Meath, is being built to house some of the world's most sophisticated electronic machines; but it will also include solid limestone seating from McKeon Stone.
