Not so long ago, all the flour that was consumed in Ireland was ground locally in mills around the country.

Long before the arrival of the large sliced pan, the flour produced in these local centres was used in homes to produce the finest soda or wheaten breads. Once there were over 7,000 mills grinding the grain for our bread. Today, Portarlington is home to the only remaining industrial mill, with the majority of the flour we use now coming from the UK.

One of the great mill houses that would have provided locals with flour was at Millvale in Tullyvin, Co Cavan. The mill is long gone from the yard, but the stream that powered it still flows behind the house.
