This book brings together a series of essays which unfold and illuminate the history of the Irish flour milling industry from the medieval period to the present day.

Milling was one of Ireland's foremost industries, playing a critically important role in the local economy of many districts, servicing farmers needs and processing some of the key components in the Irish food supply.

Despite being the most widely dispersed industry in the country, with bread and other milling components playing a central role in the Irish diet, the topic has not received the attention it deserves from social or economic historians, who've focused more on the potato.

This book addresses that lacunae and incorporates a range of new research to form a comprehensive overview.

Attractively illustrated by a large collection of photographs and drawings, Irish Flour milling will be of particular interest to social, economic and local historians, industrial archaeologists, ethnologists and anthropologists, and the many people with family connections to the industry: Boland's, Hallinan's and Hughes; Pollexfen's, Russell's, Odlum's and Shackleton's.
