Appraisal

A mill has been on this site since the 1600s. This mill retains much of its original tall, simple form and structure. Prominently located, it serves as a physical reminder of the industrial and social history of the area. Its broad frontage presents a strong and attractive roadside feature. However, the main mill building, which faced the River Shannon, is not longer extant.
