Most Excellent Attention to Detail
On behalf of our entire family, I would like to compliment Martin on the most excellent manner in which he related with me during the entire project. From the very first time I contacted him; he was very professional at every stage as we moved from the very beginning all the way through to the very end. I was especially impressed by his provision of choice and his most excellent attention to every detail.
He has a really emphatic personality and a most capable ability in the operation of information technology. In my own case this was so very helpful as I was located in the United States. I would absolutely have no hesitancy in recommending Martin and Rooney Monumental Works to anyone who wishes to do business with them ,as I am most pleased with their overall very professional and totally satisfactory performance.
Compassionate and Professional
My family and I would like to sincerely thank Martin, his son Damien and the rest of the team for their outstanding work in erecting the headstone and surround for our dear Mum’s grave. When we first met with Martin we were still in a very raw state, and he totally empathised and understood our grief. It was our first time going through this difficult experience and Martin took time to guide us through the many things which we needed to consider.
Given that we were all in the depths of grief, we found it very difficult to focus and to be clear on detail. Because of this we asked Martin and Damien to make several changes along the way, which they both did willingly, which meant so much to us as a family. They both have the patience of a Saint! Their compassion and willingness to support us at all times, enabled us to secure a resting place for our mum that is so fitting for the special lady that she was. The headstone and surround has been erected to the highest possible standard. This in turn provides our family with a beautiful, peaceful and special place where we can regularly visit, pray and be at one with our dear mum. We will forever hold a debt of gratitude to Martin, Damien and their team.

Professional and Excellent Service.
From our first visit to the showroom and until the final touches were completed Martin and Damien at Rooneys were so professional and helpful. They were patient and understanding throughout our decision making. We were also delighted with the communication answering phone calls and emails speedily. They did an amazing job and would highly recommend.
Service of Perfection
We, the family of Tommy O’ Loughlin want to thank Damien Rooney, his dad & family for their high standard of professionalism and the care they put into the work they carried out for us on our dads grave. From the first day we called in, to the completion of the grave, their service was of the highest standard. Damien checked on numerous occasions with us to ensure we got the text and font and image of our dad to our satisfaction. We cannot recommend this family business highly enough. When we saw the finished job we have to say that they surpassed our expectations on our dads final resting place. Would highly recommend them and would like to thank them again for their wonderful work.

The Highest Quality
I want to thank Damien Rooney for the standard of care, professionalism and integrity of the work he (they) carried out on our mothers grave. From the 1st day we called into him, to the completion of the grave was second to none. Nothing was ever a problem, he checked & doubled checked with us to ensure everything was spot on with wording, font etc. He never rushed us in our decisions & helped in every way he could (we even had a laugh considering the sadness of the situation). I cannot recommend them highly enough. They took the hardship away from us when this was the first time we’d to deal with this situation.

Lovely People and Excellent Service
Choosing a headstone for a loved one’s grave is very emotional and daunting. It is one of the major milestones in the grieving process. Damien and Martin Rooney made this process as easy as possible for us from the very start. From the first phone call I could sense Damien’s empathic and professional attitude. Their website and catalogue are well laid out and easy to navigate, and their showroom is big enough, yet small enough so that it is not overwhelming. But the most important factor was their kind, patient attitude.
They took time with us, and were always approachable and understanding. The men who erected the headstone were equally kind and sensitive, and the quality of their work is excellent. We are extremely happy with our headstone and would highly recommend Rooney’s to anyone.
Thank you Damien, Martin, Peter and Fintan.
Ann Lyons and family.
Empathetic. Patient and Highly Professional – a pleasure to work with.
I would like to take this opportunity to highly commend the work of Damien, Martin, and all at Rooney monumental works, Athenry. From our first meeting, when the choice of stone was discussed, through discussions on the different fonts that we might employ in laying out the inscription, to the final erection of the headstone, Damien and Martin have demonstrated a very high degree of professionalism.
The pandemic hampered their activities to some extent but they never let it impinge upon their dedication to their craft. Damien, especially, as ‘front of house, ‘was particularly helpful when it came to organising the layout of the inscription. On occasions, I felt that we might have tried his patience, as we attempted to settle on a particular combination of fonts for the inscription. However, Damien remained accommodating throughout.
The final work is a testament to a firm which operates to the highest standards, and the monument is a fitting memorial to a beloved wife, Dr Anne.
So Efficient and Beautiful Work
We met Damien’s dad and he showed us the complete range of Headstones available. He incorporated without any difficulty every single request we made to be included on the Headstone.
We wanted further additions at ground level and there was absolutely no difficulty in meeting what we asked for. He gave us a date for completion of work and he sent us pictures of what it was going to look like. We changed some of the inscriptions and these were instantly changed and he again sent us pictures before he started the work.
The job was completed ahead of time and only then had we to complete payment. You will not meet a more efficient company in operation than Damien and his dad.
Extremely High Standard
I can’t rate Damien and his Dad highly enough. We dealt with them both while arranging my Mams headstone. Nothing is too much trouble they give great advice and the communication is great. It can be a tough time and they treat the whole process with great sensitivity. Our job was finished to a real high standard.
Exceptional Craftsmanship & Service
After our initial visit to Rooney Monumental in search of a memorial to honour our wonderful man, our family looked no further. The courtesy, sensitivity and professionalism that we were met with made the decision process very easy. Martin and Damien were always on hand to offer us advice and guided us through the process from start to finish. The craftsmanship with which the completed headstone and grave surround is of exceptional standard. Our family wish to thank the Rooney family for the kindness and patience shown to us through an extremely hard process. We would recommend without hesitation anyone looking for a memorial to get in touch with Rooneys .
