Another of the town's historical buildings going to waste & almost forgotten.

wouldn't it be good to see some of these places restored to their former glory if thats possible.

It would be great to see it restored with access via an interpretive/ tourist information centre where Eurospar is now !!!

Subject has been mentioned before....

and as mentioned previously the Blennerville Windmill in Kerry is hard to beat by way of a restoration.......

Even if it could not be restored as a working windmill....... perhaps it could be be rebuilt and given a face lift...with sails etc....it would at least give the tourists something different to look at and also give us all something different to photograph !

Brian - I love to see photos of the old
windmill, because I remember it very well,
when I lived in Post Office St. :D
