Gloun Stone Quarries have been in the quarry business for over forty years and have extensive experience in producing high quality product for all requirements and needs.
We are a local company supplying a local product to the local community.
Frank Hurley started supplying sand and gravel to the West Cork area in 1960 adding Plant Hire in the late 1960’s. He continued expanding the business throughout the 1970’s with his son Michael taking an active role in 1980s.
Continuing the Plant Hire and Haulage delivering stone from other distant sources, he decided that a local source would be beneficial both economically and environmentally and so opened the quarry at Gloun in 1998 to deliver a local product at a good price.
Since then Gloun Stone Quarries has gone from strength to strength over the past twenty years the emphasis for the company has been to supply quality local stone and readymix concrete.
Having started in West Cork we have expanded to operate a Limestone quarry at Cahir West, Kenmare where we produce high quality Ready Mix Concrete general purpose and Grant Requirements, Aggregates and Agricultural Lime. We supply our products to customers in the commercial and domestic markets in the West Cork and South Kerry Area.
