About Us

J.W Carnegie was first established by John Carnegie in 1934 to supply the construction industry with sand and gravel.

Wicklow-based, Family Run Quarry

It is now a family run business run and owned by Dermot Carnegie for the past 45 years. Initially operated from Blackrock in Co. Dublin, the company moved to its present site in Dillionsdown in Blessington in 1948. Here the scale of the operation and the breath of the product line are served by an updated static screening, washing and crushing plant.

The company has grown from strength to strength throughout the years and has supplied materials to some of Dublin, Wicklow and Kildare’s largest building projects!

Examples include the following:

  • M1 and M50 motorways
  • Intel
  • City West Campus
  • N11 motorway
  • Cherrywood Campus
  • Luas Project

We have a close working relationship with all the major concrete producers and building providers, many of which we have being serving for a considerable time.
Our main objective is to offer clients a reliable, friendly and cost effective service.
We are available to offer advice on what type of sand, gravel or crushed stone product is suitable for your needs and we’ll calculate the quantity needed to complete your job, be it large or small!
