The Windmill.

The windmill was known as either Seatown Mill or Dundalk Mill. There is no documentary evidence to prove it but the mill probably dates back to the twelfth or early thirteenth century.

The immense windmill, seven storeys high was a prominent building in Seatown. It is said to have been one of the largest in Ireland but it has not been in use since about 1855. The wooden gallery which surrounded it and the wooden sails were taken down in 1870 because of their decayed and dangerous condition.

The mill was built by a Mr. Martin .It contained five pairs of stones and ground fine flour, oatmeal and Indian corn. It was owned by James Kieran.
