About Rooney Stone
Rooney Stone is a family business set in the heart of the Mourne
Mountains in Ireland. My family have been in the stonemasonry
business for over a hundred and twenty years, and are renowned for
the superior quality and craftsmanship of our family stonemasons
down through the years.
My uncle, James Rooney,
was commissioned to undertake the construction of the JFK Memorial
in Co Wexford, Ireland. He was also commissioned to construct one of
the largest Celtic crosses in Ireland approximately 60 years ago.
Cut from a solid block of granite, the cross resides in County Down,
near the town of Rathfriland. "Referred to as one of the best
stonemasons of his generation James' work will remain a testimony to
his skills and ability for future generations", (quote Paul
Thomas Rooney -
Director Rooney Stone).
Stone hopes to continue in the tradition of Stonemasonry and
Michael Rooney (aged 11), plans to continues in Dad's
footsteps (I think being
able to cut stone is brilliant, I have my own tools and
travel to jobs with dad when school is out! Dad tells me
girls love strong good looking stonemasons - contact me
through the website!!")
