Kilkenny Blue Limestone

Irish Blue Limestone is a natural material and the physical properties reflect the conditions under which the stone originally formed and the subsequent geological history of Ireland.

Kilkenny, The Sculptor’s Choice

There is a great tradition of Sculptors using Threecastles Limestone for important civic and private works. The many textures and finishes on Limestone give the artist great scope for expression.
