Forming the hard and enduring geological backbone of County Wicklow, granite shapes and effects much of our natural environment. Stone cut from the Ballyknockan quarries was used to rebuild the GPO in O’Connell Street in Dublin after it was destroyed by shellfire during the Easter Rising in 1916. (Photo: Frank McGowan)
