Originally part of the Mountbellew Estate and set up by the Bellew family, the Mountbellew Demesne water mill, built c.1860, used water from the nearby lake to provide power to process grain into flour. The buildings facade still retains its pitching doors on upper levels which would have accommodated grain storage. Mills such as this, were an important part of local agricultural life and key to the economic development of an area. #TalkingHistory #Mountbellew #Galway #VisitGalway

An intriguing sight of Galway are it's dry stone walls. Dry stone walls are built with no mortar holding the stone together. They are made by carefully selecting stones that will balance and ‘sit’ into the wall. Built over generations, dry stone walls were built for two reasons; to clear the land of stones in order for it to be farmed and to create a separate divisions of land. #drystonewalls #connemara #galway

This statue commemorates the racehorse ‘Bobbyjo’. Bobbyjo (1990-2001) was an Irish bred racehorse, best remembered as the winner of the 1999 Grand National steeplechase at Aintree. The horse broke a knee at Fairyhouse Racecourse in February 2001 and had to be put down one month later due to his incurable injuries. #Bobbyjo #TalkingHistory #Mountbellew #Galway #VisitGalway
