    Default Killeagh Mill, County Cork, Ireland, December 2019


    1. The History
    The detached multiple-bay five-storey mill was built circa 1790. The former corn mill is an imposing feature of the town and retains much of its original form and structure but is in a ruinous state. It serves as a reminder of the industrial past of Killeagh. The mill may also have served as a bleach mill given the River Dissour was renowned for its bleaching properties in the nineteenth century. It ceased operations around 1942 and is included in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage.

    2. The Explore
    Bit of a derp mill I stumbled upon while failing at an old abandoned mansion up the hill from the main village. Nothing special but worth 20 or so minutes early one December morning.

    CCTV. Heras fence, live house next to it and all on a very exposed hillside.

    Interesting, most derelict buildings in Ireland seem to be very bare, almost picked clean of everything. Not sure why they'd bother with CCTV as the mansion looks like an empty shell …
