The Kilmainham Mill, overlooking the River Carmac, is a protected structure that consists of early 19th to mid-20th century buildings with an adjacent, infilled millrace. It served as a flour mill prior to conversion for textile production at the turn of the last century and ceased all industrial use in 2000. It has remained unoccupied since.
Following the purchase of this complex by DCC, a range of surveys determined that essential stabilisation and repair works were required. The first stage of works have begun and will provide safe access to the building and allow DCC to begin the process of implementing the long-term restoration strategy.
