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.

Tommy O’ Loughlin
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.
The Loughlin Family.
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 .
Thank you to everyone at Rooney’s and to Damien in particular for his kindness, professionalism and attention to detail. Choosing a headstone for my darling husband’s grave was a daunting task made much easier with Damien’s help. I was delighted to find that travelling to the midlands to carry out the work was not a problem for Rooney’s. The outcome is a fabulous memorial to be proud of.
Míle buíochas from the Hegartys.
I dealt with Damien from the word go and he was helpful, patient and professional. The headstone for our Mum was beautiful and just what we wanted. I can fully recommend Rooney Monumental for their excellent service.
Thank you, Damien.
The Giandoni Family.
We would like to thank Martin and Damien and all at Rooney Monumental for the lovely job they did on our parents grave. They were extremely professional and accommodating from the first time we met with them and although this process was done during Covid they were still able to facilitate us with all our needs. They spent plenty of time with us going through all the choices and options and advising us based on their experience. The whole process was made much easier and was done very efficiently from the beginning so huge thanks to everyone at Rooney monumental and I would highly recommend Rooney Monumental.
Professional & Efficient Service
This was the first time my family had to order a headstone, we really didn’t know where to begin. Picking a headstone for a loved one is not an easy task for any family but Damien made it so easy for us. Damien was very professional, sincere, patient and honest in terms of what was possible.
Damien kept in contact throughout making sure we were happy with all the details in terms of design & text to be put on the headstone. No question or ask was ever a problem. I would highly recommend Rooney Monumental, not only was the attention to detail and quality of work excellent from start to finish but how quickly everything was done was fantastic.
We would like to express our sincere thanks to Martin, Damien & all the staff at Rooney Monumental Work for their professionalism & efficiency in providing a beautiful fitting tribute for my mum.
Professional, Friendly and Experienced.
Having been the first time ordering a headstone we were unsure of the process and the amount of involvement and detail that we could have in the finished product. Having looked at numerous other headstones in local graveyards, Rooney’s were by far the most professionally finished from details in the joints when fitted to the precise and exact cutting of artificial grass to name a few.
We dealt with Damien who was professional, experienced, patient and honest in what we were asking for and in what could be done. From showing the headstones in the show room and then to the local graveyard to see the headstones in natural light it was clear from the very start that client satisfaction was important and priority. Damien kept constant contact through email and phone calls making sure we were 100% involved in the process.
I would gladly and highly recommend Rooney Monumental where the attention to detail and quality of work was outstanding from start to finish. Thank you to Damien and staff for providing a beautiful fitting tribute to a loved husband, dad and grandad.
The Moran Family
Headstone for Husband & Father
We would like to sincerely thank Damien for his professional manner and for being so accommodating to us, nothing was a problem for him. We are delighted with the beautiful headstone. We would highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works.
Picking a headstone for a loved one is not the easiest thing for any family to do but Damien made it so easy for us, a visit to the graveyard for a chat & a couple of WhatsApp’s & we were sorted, we are just so happy with the service we got from Rooney’s & the headstone is just fabulous.
Thanks again guys.
Keep up the excellent work.
Damien and Martin are very professional in both the quality of their work and the overall service they provide. They were so patient and considerate during what is a difficult time for families. Nothing was ever a problem for them. The work included renovation of an old headstone and erecting a new headstone, as close in design and colour to the existing one as possible. Rooneys managed this perfectly and we are absolutely delighted with the end result. We dealt mostly with Damien who has such a patient and sincere way of dealing with his clients while being extremely professional. He was always available by phone/email or calling to the office which made the process so much easier for us.
We would highly recommend Rooney’s, they give 100%.

5 Star Service!
We cannot recommend Rooney’s enough. Their professionalism and kind manner is second to none. They kept in constant contact throughout with emails, letting us know work had started and when it had been finished. We cannot thank Damien enough for all his work. It is now a beautiful resting place for our son.
Thank you will never be enough.
Our family are very pleased with the result and the excellent service provided by Damien in the construction of our Dads headstone recently. Covid restrictions didn’t hinder progress in recent months as Damien regularly communicated progress electronically and was very patient with our multiple requests when tweaking the wording for the inscription.
Thank you Rooney’s – Great service.
Respect, Craftsmanship and Professionalism
We are very grateful to Rooney Monumental Works for their respect, craftsmanship and professionalism. From our initial phone call, to the manner in which we were welcomed to their showroom, even bringing us to a local cemetery to view a similar headstone design. They remained in constant contact through the various stages of design and production, and drove across the country to erect the headstone without any fuss. I cannot recommend this company highly enough and you will not find nicer people to deal with than Damien and Martin Rooney.
We would like to thank Martin & Damien for the professional workmanship on the restoration of the family graves at Killeany cemetery, Inishmore, Aran Islands. We appreciate you taking the time to travel to the island to complete the work.
The O’Donnell family, Inishmore.
Outstanding & Compassionate Service
Rooney Monumental came highly recommended and their excellent reputation is well deserved. I cannot thank Damien enough for his professionalism and compassion in guiding me through the difficult and emotional process of choosing a headstone for my parents.
A visit to the workshop in Athenry was really useful, as there was a good selection of headstones and surrounds in different styles, finishes and colours to chose from, as well as photographs and brochures to look through. Damien was very calm and empathetic so I felt I could take as much time I needed to look around, as well as at each step of the decision-making process. Living in the UK was not a problem either, as Damien responded very quickly to my emails and WhatsApp messages. The end result is a perfect tribute to my parents and I’m absolutely delighted.
Thank you so much Damien and all at Rooney Monumental.
Courteous, kind and Patient
I worked with Martin and Damian to create a unique gravestone and grave for my father. Martin and Damian were excellent at walking us through all the planning and creation of the plot and the gravestone. Both Martin and Damian have excellent attention to detail. They are also courteous, kind and patient in helping you to find the perfect outlay for it all.
I highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works.
Timeless, Beautiful Headstone
Thanks to Damien and all in Rooney Monumental Works for creating a timeless, beautiful headstone for our parents. Damien went above and beyond to assist us in choosing the last thing that we would do for our parents. Damien’s advise, professionalism, technical workmanship really made this a very easy process.
Damien can relate easily to people and listens to what families wish and exceeded expectations throughout the process. There was never any fuss, anything we asked was possible and this is exactly what our parents would be very proud of.
As a business I found them competitively priced, easy to deal with and excellent customer focused so I could not ask for more.
Our Sincere Thanks
We would like to express our sincere thanks to Damian and the staff at Rooney Monumental Works for their professionalism and efficiency in our recent dealings with them. We are extremely happy with the very high standard of workmanship. We highly recommend Rooney’s and the excellent standard of work they provide.
We the Mc Gahon Family wish to express our deepest gratitude at Rooney Monumental Works for the beautiful Headstone and surround they completed for us recently. We found them to be very professional and very helpful when it came to the design of the grave. The whole job was completed within the time frame and never a mention of payment until the job was completely finished and they are always keen to make sure the client is happy with the finished work.
I would highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works going forward.Thank you!
The restoration work Rooney Monumental Works completed on my Grandparents’ grave site was absolutely amazing. Extremely skilled tradespeople. Working with Damien was so easy. I would recommend this company to anyone.
I reside in the US. After online communication with 3 other companies haggling with schedule and pricing, I was fortunate to find Rooney Monuments. The entire process from start to finish was effortless. Within one week of first contact, Damien had visited the gravesite, took pictures, made all recommendations and provided a price quote. Work was completed ahead of schedule. Damien honored the initial price quote. I was offered to inspect the work before payment. Truly a professional and ethical business transaction. My family is amazed at the workmanship and overall work quality.

Beautiful Headstones and Great Personalised Service
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.

Parent’s headstone and grave.
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.
were a pleasure to deal with.
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.
Peace of Mind
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
Damien is a pleasure to deal with. My grand uncles grave was restored to pristine condition and thank you for the beautiful plaque you made for me. My mother was overjoyed with it and the quality of the work is magnificent
Beautiful Headstone Provided
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
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.

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.

We now have a stunning low maintenance grave. Thank you again.

Empathy, Efficiency and Friendliness
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.
Piece of Advice…
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.
Friendly, Very Professional and Helpful
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.
Very Professional Work
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.

Excellent to work with and excellent workmanship
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.
Great service for the community
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…

An Amazing Job!
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.
