Colinwell Masonry


Over 100 years ago, John McQuillan began quarrying limestone at Colinwell, so named because of the large natural spring well which rises at the site on the slopes of Colin Mountain. Since then the company has progressed from being a quarrying and aggregate processing company to a walling product manufacturer.
