Thank you very much for your very prompt and professional service. The headstone which you produced is superb and the whole family are very grateful to you
Thank you Damien for making what we thought would be a very difficult process a very easy one. We are so pleased with how our Dads headstone had turned out. Such attention to detail. We would highly recommend Rooney’s for professionalism, choice of product and pricing.
The headstone had to be special as it was for a very special man, our Dad. He would have been very proud.
Sincere and heartfelt thanks to Damien for all his help.
I highly recommend Damien and his team at Rooney Monumental.
We wanted a custom job, and Damien was so professional, kind, responsive and easy to deal with. Can’t emphasise how happy we are and what a great job Damien and his excellent crew produced.
Cannot recommend Rooney’s highly enough. Choosing and arranging a headstone for a loved one is tough and emotional but our wonderful experience made the process very smooth and we are so happy with the outcome. If we could give more than five stars we would!
The Feury Family
From my first phone call to Damien, he has been professional, patient and compassionate throughout. At an incredibly difficult time I couldn’t have asked for a better service.
Thank you Damien and Martin for a job well done. From day one we were met with professionalism, kindness and compassion. Nothing was a problem and great attention was paid to every detail. You really are experts in your field. We would highly recommend them.
Excellent service and a lovely personal touch from all the guys. Highly recommended to me initially and highly recommended by me.
Great service from the Rooney’s, at such a bad time. Very professional and caring. I’m so glad we chose them. Dad would be very proud. Nice doing business. Hopefully another 50 years before we do it again. Thank you so much. The Gardner Family ( England )

We would highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works.
The Long Family.
My family could not praise Rooney Monumental Works highly enough. From the first visit Martin and Damien could not have been more considerate and professional. They gave great guidance in choosing a headstone for my Dad and made sure the work was completed by the requested date.
Great place easy to find and very understanding there 👍 thanks.
That sums up the entire service we received from Damien and his colleagues.
No request was too small or too big, they performed everything we asked for and we had calls and texts from them suggesting ideas we did not think of,
Everything went perfectly and the work they performed is a credit to Damien and the team, they went above and beyond to ensure our loved one is remembered.
I recommend Rooneys to anyone because they are clearly experts in their field and deliver truly amazing work.
Thank you Damien and all the Rooneys Monumental team.
Very satisfied with the work of Rooney Monumental, very easy to deal with and kept us updated on the progress. The picture speaks for it self. Thank you so much my Dad would have loved this himself. Hopefully we can see it in the flesh soon.
The Huban Family.
I am very happy with my husband’s headstone and the advice provided to me by Damien. He also did a great job restoring an old family headstone.
Could not rate Damien and Martin highly enough. We dealt with both of them while arranging my Dad’s grave stone. Nothing is too much hassle, they give great advice and the communication is brilliant. Our Dad’s grave stone was finished so perfectly, so happy with it. Would highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works.
Sincere thanks to Damien and the team for the work that was carried out on my Mothers grave. I honestly couldn’t recommend them higher and would have no hesitation in recommending them. Their professionalism & quality of work is second to none.
Was very happy with service — from design to installation. They were efficient and friendly and the final result was exactly what we were hoping for. Communication throughout process was excellent.
Did a brilliant job cleaning up a grave and headstones for me, I would highly recommend.
Then just 12 months later they added my Dad’s details on.
They are very professional & did such a great job. Thank you for everything
Thanks Damien and the team.
When my sister and I first entered the office of Rooney Monumental works, we were greeted by Damien and we were immediately impressed by his professionalism and his kindness. He served us with his experience and offered his expert advise to us on choosing a headstone for our beloved parents.
We also needed our Grandparents grave to be repaired and this was not a problem.
All through the process, Damien communicated efficiently through email and he was always on hand to answer a call. Damien and his Dad Martin and their team are a credit to their business and we highly recommend them.
Thank you Damien & Co for a job well done and a fitting tribute to our parents.
Thank you so very much Damien for such an amazing job cleaning Harry’s headstone and grave. We are absolutely delighted with the result, wouldn’t have believed how well it would turn out after 22 years. Damien was a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend getting headstone and surround cleaned with him.
From the beginning we found Damien very friendly. He listened to what we were saying and knew exactly what we were looking for. We found him to be very compassionate, patient and nothing was too much trouble. He was always available at the other end of the phone. All the team were always professional and it showed in the amazing workmanship on our daughter’s beautiful headstone and surrounding. His showroom is very easy to find with many types of headstones, kerbing and stones. The detail was second to none and we appreciate that everything was just perfect! Thank you for everything, Tanya and Paul Folan
Thank you Damien for looking after erecting the beautful headstone on my late husbands Pat’s grave, we are so happy as a family with your professional service, and kindness to us. God bless you and your Dad Martin. I would highly recommend your business.
Martin and Damien provide an excellent service and are most helpful and professional. We are delighted with our father’s headstone and would most definitely recommend them.
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 empathic 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 Damien 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.
Thank you to Damien and staff for providing a beautiful fitting tribute to a loved wife, mother and Nana.
Every time I rang it was never a problem and put my mind at ease and send on samples of what the finish product would be like. The headstone is now up the workmanship is of the highest standard. On behave of the Earls Family I would take this opportunity to Thank Damien and his team for all their kindness.

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.

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.
From the family of

The Loughlin Family.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
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.

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. Thank you, The O’Donnell family, Inishmore.
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.
I highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works.
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.
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. Armstrong Family
I would highly recommend Rooney Monumental Works going forward.Thank you!
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.

Outstanding work – could not be more pleased. My entire family truly appreciates everything! Best Regards, Atlanta, GA USA
The Lynch family.
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.
