The origins of Roadstone go back to the early 1930’s when two Dublin brothers Tom and Donal Roche started a sand and gravel haulage business operating from a small yard at Inchicore in West Dublin. Their company developed steadily during the 30’s and 40’s and a new company, Roadstone, launched in 1949.
