Description

Cast-iron vent pipe, dated 1914, having fluted base section with shaft over now broken. Located to the west end of Mullingar adjacent to Valley Cottages (1531030).

Appraisal

One of only two ventilators noted in the town and thus a rare survivor of the early municipal drainage infrastructure. Unfortunately this example has now been broken and this detracts from its importance to the streetscape.
