Description
Twelve-bay six-storey former corn mill, built c. 1830, rebuilt substantially c.1850, having two-storey addition to south-east. Now vacant and disused. Hipped slate roof to main mill building, unroofed to addition, with cast-iron rainwater goods. Coursed limestone rubble walls with vents to eaves. Square-headed window openings with yellow brick surrounds and limestone sills, some barred and some retaining small pane timber windows. Heavy timber board floors and large timber supports intact to lower floors. Millrace runs along south-west elevation, with sluice at roadside. Three-bay two-storey miller's house to south-west with pitched slate roof and replacement timber door and windows.

Appraisal

An impressive and imposing mill situated beside Derrinsallow bridge on the Little Brosna River. Despite the fact that the mill has been empty and unused for many years the use of a robust design and high quality materials has ensured the survival of the building, including much of the interior. Although many water-powered mills were built in Ireland in the early 19th century the corn mill at Derrinsallow is larger than usual.
