Connemara Marble Quarry

Or showing my wife a good time

We honeymooned in Ireland back in 1971. And how better to show love and affection for my newlywed wife than to seek out some industrial archaeology? We went to look at the Connemara marble quarry.

And there is my wife under the massive crane that could lift and move huge blocks of marble.


This monster really did reach for the sky.



We can see the lumps of marble really were huge.


I’ve enhanced this close up of a piece of marble to make it match my memory. My good old Canon Demi didn’t render it well!
