Eric Byrne is a second-generation master stonemason who has always had a passion for indigenous Irish stone. He hand picks each piece from quarries in Connemara (marble), Kilkenny (Limestone) and Dublin (Granite). Each piece of stone is carefully chosen for its colour and strength. He learned his skills from his father and as a kid, spent his summer holidays polishing stone. Using traditional skills and working with stone for over twenty years, he crafts products in Blessington, Co. Wicklow since 2010.
