County Galway Moycullen- Connemara Marble - Connemara Marble Slabs
County Galway Moycullen- Connemara Marble - Connemara Marble Slabs
View is to the southwest. These slabs are on display outside near the entrance. In the past, much larger slabs were quarried, cut & polished for use as flooring and window sills in abbeys, churches, cathedrals, friaries & monasteries primarily. Today, only small pieces of Connemara Marble are sold, as the supply is starting to dwindle.
