Ancient Buildings
Ruins of Wind Mills
Up to about fifty years ago wind mills were in use in the district of Kilmore. On the road to Bridgetown about a quarter of a mile from Kilmore Village stands the ruins of an old wind-mill.

About a mile and a half fro Kilmore in the direction of Ballyhealy there is another wind mill at Booley's Cross. This mill is quite intact but is not used for grinding purposes.
