Liscannor’s famous stone is still finding its way to all corners of the world, many years after there was a thriving quarrying industry in the area employing 500 men in at least nine quarries.
The quarries were so prosperous in the early 1900’s that a village was built around the famous Doonagore mines which also put Liscannor port on the map. However, the advent of World War I put an end to all the prosperity and when the boats were unable to travel the mines closed.
However, a number of mines were re-opened on a smaller scale in the Liscannor area in the 1960’s and are still producing the famous stone today. The Liscannor Stone office is located here at The Rock Shop.
