In 1997, our Quarry in Kilmichael near Macroom was opened and Mid-Cork Quarries (Kilmichael) Limited was born. Soon after, a further dimension to the Group was added in the form of our own Asphalt Manufacturing Plant.
This was followed in 2005 with the opening of a further Asphalt Manufacturing Plant at Banemore, outside Listowel, known as Kerry Tarmacadam Manufacturing Limited. Since 2016 both companies now operate as McSweeney Bros Quarries Ltd.
In addition McSweeney Bros Quarries Ltd have acquired a landfill licence at our depot in Shanlauragh and can receive various types of stone, soil, rock, concrete and top soil. Our stone can be supplied and delivered in various amounts from 1 ton bags to 30 ton deliveries.
