Skerries Windmill
Skerries Windmill
In Skerries, there are two windmills and a watermill – a unique collection of mills and one of Ireland’s foremost industrial heritage centres. The story of stone-ground milling in Skerries can be traced to the early 16th century when the lands belonged to the Priory of Holmpatrick, an Augustinian monastic foundation. Milling continued in Skerries until the early years of the 20th century and a bakery which existed by 1840, was producing breads and confectionery until the mid 1980’s.
