Description
Freestanding tapered round-plan rubble stone industrial chimney, built c.1860, having red brick to upper portion. Now disused.

Appraisal

This chimney was associated with a lead mine, noted as disused in 1909. It is an interesting structure and the only visible remnant of the industrial heritage of this site, once one of the biggest lead mines in Monaghan, also known as Hope Mine. The chimney is a notable feature in the surrounding rural landscape due to its scale and form.
