Joe Cloherty, a native of Waterdale, Claregalway has a unique talent in stonework. He has always had an interest in stonework and was inspired a few years ago when he saw a cottage made of stone in an English magazine. He copied this example and has gone on to make this beautiful replica of the Abbey Monastery which can be seen outside Dunleavy’s Public House. It took Joe approximately 1 week to make this design, spending a few hours every evening working on it. He has also made a model of a cottage which can be seen at the Bank of Ireland in Eyre Square, Galway.
Joe is available to make any design people wish and can be contacted at (091) 798 637.
