Sliabh Aughty Furnace Project
The Sliabh Aughty Furnace Project is concerned with the study of the remains of the 17th and 18th century iron industry on the western shores of Lough Derg. No less than seven blast-furnaces were active in the area in that period.
Our main activities are the conservation of the upstanding remains, research into to history of the Sliabh Aughty iron industry and spreading the information on the same. Interested people and volunteers are very welcome!
