Description
Freestanding circular-plan windmill, built c.1780. Roofless. Rubble limestone walls. Enlarged irregular door openings to east and west. Slit window with rubble stone lintel to upper level. Set within demesne lands of Eyreville.

Appraisal

Although now ruinous and roofless, this is a visual reminder of the industrial heritage of South Galway. One of several circular-plan windmills in the county, this is situated on an elevated site, and makes an eyecatching landmark north of Kiltormer village.
