The tradition of stone carving in Ireland dates back to ancient times and techniques of designing and carving stone have changed very little over the centuries.

We, at Smith Monumentals are working to preserve these traditions and we take care and pride in our abilities to create unique monuments using a collaboration of old techniques and new ideas.

Be it the unmistakable beauty of a traditional high cross or a modern design with a timeless feel, Irish Blue Limestone is a perfect material for carving and creating monuments.

We are happy to discuss any design ideas you might have
