Mullins Mill, Kells, country kilkenny

One feature of the landscape around county kilkenny is it’s old mills, the main river flowing through the county is the river Nore , the county however also has many smaller rivers, including the Kings river that flows from the Slieveardagh Hills in South Tipperary to the river Nore at stoneyford.

Along many of the rivers in county kilkenny you will find the remains of a once thriving milling industry that has long since stop any production, Most of these building however still stand today and some have been very well perserved.

Mullins Mill (Pictured here) in the town of Kells, has to be one of the best such example

    Happy Monday. These images are fascinating. Are the two images of the same structure? The first looks a very large building, and the second about the size of a large house. You’ve captured the reflections beautifully. Thank you, Nigel.

    • Hello Scott πŸ™‚

      Thank you πŸ™‚

      The two building were part of the same complex, Scott.

      The smaller mill is just higher up stream than the larger of the two but both mill’s used the same mill race to power there water wheels. I don’t know exactly how each building was used, but they both worked side by side ….
