Shannonvale Mill, near the former Clonakilty Junction-Clonakilty railway, Co. Cork

The Shannonvale Mill had their own private siding which left the mainline near the Argideen Viaduct. It was operated exclusively by horse power right up to the closure of the whole system in March 1961. Included here is a still image from a recently released DVD about the railway, showing the system in operation. Note the mill tower in the background. Here is the OSI map for the area.

Same view as above photograph, March 1961. From recent excellent DVD about the West Cork Railways by Michael Patterson and others
