This mill belonged to William Brown and Sons, and was one of the first in Dublin to use steam power and roller milling technology. When roller milling first came to Dublin, the mill contained twenty pairs of stones, and a subsequent half high-grinding system was introduced with smooth iron and porcelain rolls.

The mill was destroyed in a fire in 1885, causing between £14,000 and £15,000 worth of damages.

It was immediately rebuilt and refitted by Thomas Robinson and Son of Rochdale, with full roller mill system capabilities.

The mill has since ceased production and been demolished.
