Liscannor's famous stone is still finding its way to all corners of the world, many years after there was a thriving quarrying industry in the area employing 500 men in at least nine quarries in the area.

The quarries were so prosperous in the early 1900's that a village was built around the famous Doonagore mines which also put Liscannor port on the map. It was one of the busiest of the small ports along the west coast of Ireland with its shipments of stone to London and Liverpool. However, the advent of Word War I put an end to all the prosperity and when the boats were unable to travel the mines closed.

However, a number of mines were re-opened on a smaller scale in the Liscannor area in the 1960's and are still producing the famous stone.
