Stephen Walsh shares the knowledge that he has gleaned over a lifetime of working with Connemara marble, outlining the history and landscape of Connemara, and the part that the quarrying and production of marble played in that story

‘My family business produces a range of jewellery, gifts and souvenirs crafted from our own Connemara Marble; this is the story of my love for Connemara and of how our uniquely Irish product became so admired and loved in America and around the world.

’ Stephen Walsh, Connemara Marble Beneath the beautiful, rugged landscape of Connemara lies Ireland’s green marble. For centuries it has been brought to the surface, worked into jewellery and sought after to adorn fine buildings.

This is the fascinating story of this iconic stone, and of the people and places it has touched.
