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.

James Rooney - Master StonemasonMy 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).


Michael Rooney 5th generation stonemasonRooney 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!!")

All stone dressing and cutting is carried out by hand to provide a unique and individual product, we can also cater for large scale stone projects using the latest cutting technologies.
