My father, Frederick Alldritt, passed away on May 8, 2018. It was a very traumatic experience for us as this was the first death in our immediate family. We did not know where to turn or what to do. Rooney Monumental Works guided me through the process and their professionalism is to be commended. My mother’s family (Fallon) come from Monard in Turloughmore. My Fallon family recommended Rooney Monumental Works of Athenry as they have an excellent reputation in the community. What I wanted was permanence and knowledge of the headstone process and that I could return to Rooney Monumental Works at any time with any issues or concerns. Rooney Monumental Works have been operating in the community for many years offering beautiful headstones and a caring personalised service to families.
There is no amount of thanks and gratitude that I can extend to Damien, Martin and the staff for all their kindness and patience that they have shown to me and my family. I really had no idea as to the planning that goes into creating and building a headstone. In addition, to that I live and work in Hawaii. This was not an issue for Damien and, irrespective of the time difference, Damien responded to me immediately in order to discuss any requests.
I come from an extensive family and there is no doubt in my mind that I shall be working with Rooney Monumental Works for the rest of my life and encouraging others to do so as well. Rooney Monumental Works are excellent monument builders and creators. I wanted a beautiful and large headstone that would accommodate 9 people and reflect on their lives lived. This was not an easy task for me from the beginning to the end, and especially since I lived so far away. I really did not know how I could have 9 names on the headstone and remember each person’s lives to the full. Damien worked with me in deciphering what was needed to accomplish this goal while still keeping the integrity of the person named.
When a loved one dies, it becomes very difficult to decide what is needed and to create the perfect headstone for your loved one. Rooney Monumental Works offers personalised service, beautiful headstones, extensive experience, professionalism, and knowledge of the locality which makes them a perfect choice. Rooney Monumental Works will listen to your wants and needs. They will honour your loved ones’ memory. Rooney Monumental Works are there to guide you as you walk through this process, knowing that the result will be what you envisioned. It is a daunting task; therefore, I wholeheartedly recommend Rooney Monumental Works of Athenry to be your choice of headstone so that you will receive a beautiful headstone dedicated to your loved one for eternity.

I would like to thank Martin, Damien and all the staff at Rooney Monumental for the professionalism and guidance shown to me and my family during the process of selecting a headstone for our parents. It is not an easy task to have to select a gravestone for our parents, but the guidance and professionalism shown from Martin and Damien was very helpful to us in selecting the correct stone. We viewed a vast variety of headstones in their showroom, which was a great help to us in deciding what we wanted. Martin and Damien listened to us and also offered suggestions based on their extensive professional experiences. We were aware of the lead time from the beginning and our dear parent’s headstone was erected as agreed on time. We opted for the artificial grass to go with the grave and we now have a beautiful low maintenance gave with thanks to all the staff at Rooney Monumental . We are extremely happy with the work and would highly recommend Rooney Monumental.
I contacted Damien about a headstone for my sister who sadly passed at age 48 years old. We contacted Rooneys as we knew they were a well known monumental family business in Athenry. I had been putting it off as it was not something I was looking forward to having to do for my my only sister. From the moment I met Damien he helped me narrow it down to to two or three different types of headstone which I was was able to discuss with my brothers. His expertise made it so much easier. We eventually decided on the headstone we felt happy with and they were in contact with us about wording and inscription. Nothing was too much bother. We asked would it be possible to have it in before Christmas and they had it in two weeks before Christmas. Damien and Martin were a pleasure to deal with. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
From the first contact with the staff at Rooneys they are kind, sympathetic and helpful.They start the work when they say they will and with utter professionalism. Th result is exactly what you wanted to memorize your loved one. Any queries are dealt with promptly. Working with Rooneys gives you peace of mind that what you want is what you get. Thank you
I am more than happy with the beautiful Headstone provided by Rooney Monumental Works Ltd. I dealt with Damien only and he was extremely obliging and helpful. When I first contacted him, I explained how getting to Athenry was difficult for me, he readily agreed to come and meet me and from then on he made the process very easy and all was completed ahead of time.
It was a pleasure to deal with him and I highly recommend them.
Thanks to Damien, Martin and the team at Rooney Monumental. They were very helpful during selection and had a wide variety of headstone options available. Its not an easy item to decide and arrange purchase of but the team provided guidance throughout. The lead time to have our selection in place was explained from the beginning. Our timeline was meet 2 weeks early and prior to inscriptions on the stone we had the option to make any last minute changes. They also kept us up to date during the various stage of production etc.
We are glad we made the decision to purchase from Rooney Monumental.
Thank you to Damien and staff @ Rooney Monumental Works for an amazing job on our dad’s headstone. You made it all so easy from start to finish and also had work completed a lot earlier than we expected. Brilliant job thank you so much.

We recently ordered a headstone for my Dad’s grave and I cannot Compliment Enough the professionalism /service/workmanship we received from Damien and all in Rooney Monumental.
May 2019 – After the wonderful restoration of a family grave in May 2018, we had no hesitation in asking Rooney Monumental Works Ltd to construct a new grave for our lovely Dad. Damien listened to our requirements and made every adjustment we requested to our satisfaction as well as making suggestions based on his professional experience. We now have a stunning low maintenance grave. Thank you again.
May 2018 – Rooney Monumental Works Ltd. recently restored an old family grave following a bereavement. The work was done to a high standard and in keeping with its original design. It now looks brand-new. Particular thanks to Damien who was helpful at every stage. Highly recommended.
The headstone and restoration that was carried out was excellent. Rooney’s were very easy to deal with from start to finish acting in a way that was professional, accommodating and kind. They carried out the work on time, and we appreciated the photographs that they took for us and sent by email.

At a very difficult personal time Damien and his team created a beautiful headstone and grave for us that we are now proud to visit. The process was managed professionally with advice, empathy, efficiency and friendliness. We highly recommend the workmanship and the personnel at Rooney Monuments.
Thank you Damien.
We got a headstone installed in February 2019. Work done is of very good quality and we are fully satisfied with it. Damien is a pleasure to deal with. They were ahead of schedule also. One piece of advice, I’d recommend viewing a few headstones down at the workshop in Athenry. I found this a good help when choosing the stone (i.e. above and beyond just looking at the brochure). You get a better idea of the style and colour when you see them in the workshop.
We approached Martin and Damian when the time came for our mothers headstone to be done. We found them friendly ,very professional and helpful when it came to answering any questions we had. We are delighted with the finished product.
Thanks to Damien and Rooney Monumental for their very professional work on our familys grave and headstones. The work is to a high standard and was carried out very quickly and without and fuss. Our family have required the services of Rooney Monumental on more than one occasion and have never been let down.
Thanks for the excellent work carried out on time and within our budget.
Excellent and efficient service with grave and headstone work completed a month ahead of schedule. Martin was very engaging and flexible, coming out to the plot to ensure all customer requirements were defined upfront. The finished grave was completed to an excellent standard. Thanks Martin and the two lads.
I cannot thank Damien enough for creating such a special tribute for my Dad Padraig ,sister Laura and baby Callum .He made a very difficult time as easy and hassle free as he possibly could -nothing was a problem ! Damien’s attention to detail and professionalism is outstanding , his level of sensitivity and understanding throughout, second to none ! Highly recommend Damien and Rooney Monumental Works..
From first to last it was a pleasure to deal with Rooney Monumental, mainly with Martin, but with Damien, too. It was also a relief for someone who had never before had to make a decision like this. The effort was not to influence my ideas but to patiently help me shape them so that I ended up with exactly what I had wanted. And then to deliver a work worthy of the loved ones buried beneath the handsome headstone.
Well done, gentlemen.
Damien and the gang at Rooney’s Memorial Works could not have been more helpful in creating the WW1 memorial for Athenry for a very generous price and stayed true to the design given and created a lovely monument. Thanks Damien. Much appreciated.
Thanks to Rooneys for making such a nice job on our grave. Easy to deal with and talk things through. We went in with an idea in our heads and Martin & Damien brought that idea to reality. The grave came out way above our expectations. Thanks Martin, Damien and staff.
Had a great experience with Damien in Rooney Monumental – very straight forward and got our
requirements for the grave easily. Work was completed to a high standard and with minimum fuss,
all ahead of schedule. And the bonus is you can include a visit to The Old Barracks coffee shop in Athenry too – a lovely spot !! Thanks again Damien…
Many thanks to Damien at Rooney Monumental Works for the beautiful Headstone and surround he completed for us recently. Damian was so nice to deal with, very professional at his job and very helpful when it came to the design of the grave. The whole job was completed within a week and it is easy to see why they are so good at what they do, as they are always keen to make sure the client is happy with the finished work. I would highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works going forward. Just on a side note, I am in no way related to the business given the same surname!
Thanks again Damian and to all at Rooney Monumental Works.
Damien was very helpful from the design all the way through to the finished grave/headstone.
It came out way better than we could have ever imagined & the price was far cheaper than the
competition.Thanks for making everything so easy lads.
Martin and his team did an amazing job on my Mothers family plot. I got granite to cover the
plot, it’s maintenance free now. I live in Sligo and I want the grave to be tidy and neat at
all times. My Mum who has passed away always used Martin to do the work for her. I am so
pleased with the work. Thank you.
I found Rooney memorials very efficient and professional to deal with. They created a beautiful
plaque for our retiring principal. They were very accommodating given the short time frame.
