We all know that stone is durable, it’s been the building material of choice throughout history. Archaeological sites around the world feature building made of stone that have endured for thousands of years. Here at McKeon Stone, we source our famous blue limestone from our own limestone quarry in Threecastles, Kilkenny and cut and craft it to each of our customer’s unique designs. We’ve been doing this since 1950 but the sought-after blue limestone from Threecastles quarry has been a popular choice since time immemorial because it stands the test of time.
