The landmark silver silos were erected in the 1930's.

Views from the silos. Note the section of the dried-up millrace - a car park today.
  High above Church Avenue, these smiling daredevils - Mick Moore, New Road; Liam Carroll, Mountmellick;
  Bill O'Connor, The Heath - show no signs of vertigo. Note the covered stalls which sold all sorts of religious
  paraphernalia during the annual 'Mission'.
