Indeed the Mill on the corner of Shannon / Henry Street is a model example of good conservation. I hope it does not become too dwarfed in size by the new Hotel. What a pity a similar Mill on the corner of Cecil / Henry Street collapsed during the redevelopment of the Carlton cinema block.

Here is the alternative result of the collapse.

Ya it was a real pity about that building, it used to house the Henry cecil pub, Aidan Brooks bought it up as part of his Shannon st/henry st development, it was planned to restore it for retail use however it collapsed in november 2003 during piling works on the Bank of scotland site. Not sure was any action ever taken over it but surely more precautions should have been taken! Apparently the building dated back to the late 18th Century! It added a bit of character to cecil street in a street seriously lacking in character, definately one of the more neglected city centre streets. Unfortunately the loss of interesting buildings has been an all too familiar occurance in Limerick over the years!
