O’Brien Stoneworks Centenary 1917 – 2017

O’Brien Stoneworks – 100 Years in Business.

1917 – 2017


O’Brien Stoneworks celebrates 100 years in business this year. The company was founded in Durrow, Co. Laois in 1917.

Over the course of the coming months we hope to celebrate our Centenary Year, by sharing with you the history, stories and photographs of our past.

During that time, we have been responsible for serving 1000`s of bereaved families, and the quality of our stonework has won international renown.
Sean O`Brien is a fifth generation stonecarver and stonecutter, son of the well known Cathal O`Brien (RIP) and nephew of the renowned Finbar O`Brien of Durrow, Co. Laois, Ireland.
Like the designs of Celtic Cross, the skills that began in monastic Ireland so long ago, are still handed down today – from father to son, uncle to nephew.
