McKeon Stone - Quarrymasters and Stone Masons

 

2018 Prizes

Over €2,200 in prize money was awarded to the winners of this year’s stone awards at the Sculpture in Context in the National Botanic Gardens sponsored by McKeon Stone. Yvonne Mc Keon presented the prizes to the award-winning sculptors.

History Revived

When a landmark building has stood since 1770 and has always been regarded as one of the finest eighteenth-century buildings in Dublin, its refurbishment and adaptation for modern use calls for the finest in design, architecture and materials.

Here at McKeon Stone we were thrilled at the opportunity last year to play host to one of Ireland's most talented living sculptors, Simon Carman. On June 9th, 2018, Carman returned to give an illustrated talk on his work at our stone yard in one of our special sculptural events which we hold on a regular basis.

 

Here at McKeon Stone we quarry some of the best limestone on our planet. Our Kilkenny Blue Limestone is sought after by some of the world's most talented sculptors as their material of choice when creating sublime works of art. As such, we were delighted to learn that our stunning Kilkenny Blue Limestone was featured at the "on form - Sculpture in Stone" exhibition, the UK's only art exhibition dedicated exclusively to stone sculpture.

McKeon Stone features prominently in a garden which has won a Gold Award at the 2018 Bloom Show in Phoenix Park, Ireland’s largest annual horticultural show.
