    • Hi John. This is Garreth Byrne. I’ll be happy to send you data on the history of Dromahair mill and the Hoseys. The millmaster’s house is late Victorian and built by the Lane Fox agent for the mill manager. My article on the history of the Dromahair mill and the new mill at the railway station built in 1909-1911 will appear in the new Leitrim Guardian 2020 to be launched at the end of November 2019.
