At this time (1850), it was ran by Edward Bowers whose family would have been the local landlords for the area.

In the early 1900's it was then bought by the Mennell family who ran it until 1924 until they left as they felt uncomfortable in Ireland at the time being English during the revolutionary period. It was then bought by Jimmy McDonald. He and his sister Peg resided there till their deaths in the 1970's and 1980's. It was then passed on to their nephew Wattie Hogan who resided their until his death in 1999. It is still in the possession of the Hogan family.
The mill was used to grind corn (barley and oats) to meal, to be used for animal feed stuffs. It was run for many years by Jack O'Shea who also lived in the mill on the third floor until his death in the 1960's.
