Mills of Northern Ireland

If your family was like mine, they were weavers or at least made their meager living through the flax fields and mills of Northern Ireland. This is an interesting look at those mills and the variety of workers that contributed to the Irish linen industry. I had mostly weavers in my family, but did find a scutcher as a 2x great grandfather in County Down. I have lots more to read on this site, but we can read together perhaps?
