Stone Masons
By Averil Staunton

When I started to research the builders of St. Mary's R.C. Church, Main St, Ballinrobe I discovered a very useful site with connections to Ireland and some aspects of Ballinrobe History.

Written by Maggie Blank, the website has a great variety of images from Maggie's own collection, various newspapers and the National Library of Ireland.

Until further information is available, I draw you attention to the Lardner Family who were stonemasons involved in the erection of the tower of the Church c. 1895.  

This family may have come to Ballinrobe c. 1783 and were certainly well established when the workhouse was being built.

If anybody has further information please allow us to share it with the Ballinrobe Community.
