I visited a quarry in Kilkenny today and saw a great collection of marbles from right the way across the country, Connemara green marble, Middleton red and grey marbles from cork, Kilkenny black marble. A lot of the old quarries these stones came from are now closed, one in particular is now underneath a housing estate. It's such a shame we import stone from all over the world and yet we have the most beautiful marbles under our feet.
