Ballinagore —County Westmeath
Ballinagore is a charming little village with a rich tradition in milling. Linen, flour and ground corn was produced here from the early 18th century. Most of the buildings were demolished and today the only remaining landmark is the lower Mill that overlooks the River Brosna. It is said that Ballinagore was one of the first villages in Ireland to have gas lighting. There are two picnic areas at Ballinagore, one situated on the banks of the River Brosna, the other situated at Liskelly on the Lough Ennell Road.
