THE ROYAL GUNPOWDER MILLS ONCE HAD A VISITOR CENTRE IN BALLINCOLLIG, COUNTY CORK. IT NO LONGER EXISTS. IT WAS CLOSED AND ITS MUSEUM EXHIBITS WERE REMOVED. TO REMEMBER IT AND TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE THAT WORKED THERE AND WHO WERE SO DETERMINED TO MAKE IT SUCCESSFUL HERE ARE SOME MEMORIES.

VISIT THE POWDER MILLS TODAY AND SEE HOW MUCH IT HAS CHANGED SINCE ITS RESTORATION IN THE 1980’S. THERE ARE SOME RECENT CONSERVATION MEASURES IN PLACE BUT THERE ARE ALSO SOME  AREAS WHICH HAVE DETERIORATED SIGNIFICANTLY.
