The Mill Stream

The Mill Stream and old footbridge at Gabbett's Grove, Corbally, before the huts and houses were built. Corbally House on the left, now Corbally House Nursing Home.

The old footbridge over the Mill Stream. The man in the photo, probably stepped out the back gate of Corbally House, just behind him. Across the bridge on the left is the Lax Weir.

The old footbridge and portion of the Lax Weir at the Mill Stream 1920. This part of the weir was to prevent fish entering the Mill Stream.

Mr. Liam Forde who lived at Lax Weir Cottage, Mill Road, now Suil na h-Abhainn, grazed his cattle on his land along by the Salmon Weir Bank, now almost completely overgrown. Mr. Forde became manager of the Lax Weir company in 1925, he was also a founder member of Limerick Beekeepers Association.

Oh dear me, hope you recovered the flipflop and enjoyed the rest of your day by the river, even though you shouldn't have been there, nice memory.

Photos remind me when 8yrs (not allowed down there) & sitting on footbridge with friends legs dangling & I lost 1 flipflop - oh the panic racing to catch it up!

Ann, this is brilliant. I spent many happy days on the Mill Stream and beyond with John Kelly from the "tin house" on the Mill Road.

Wouldn't it be nice Gerard to have a photo of the tin house, it was unique, Moorehead's and Murphy's lived there before Kelly's.
