Saint Moling's Millrace, St Mullins County Carlow

St Molings Millrace is a stream leading to a historic mill, which according to local tradition and folklore was dug by the saint by his own hands. Today, the remains of this are heavily overgrown. The St Mullins Amenity and Recreational Tourism Group Ltd want to develop an understanding of the archaeology, pilgrimage traditions and folklore related to the monument, and to ensure the protection of the monument for future generations.

Undoubtedly one of Ireland’s most important religious and heritage sites, the ecclesiastical complex at St Mullins is of great significance. St. Moling is believed to have founded a monastery here in around the seventh century. The large ditch-like earthwork known as St. Moling’s Millrace may represent the remains of an early medieval mill system.
