Blennerville Windmill

Blennerville Windmill
Blennerville, Kerry, Ireland.

Blennerville Windmill dates to 1800 and is Ireland’s largest working windmill. It was built for Sir Rowland Blennerhassett, first baron of Blennerville.

In 1801, Sir Rowland’s wife – Lady Millicent Yielding, ascended to the first floor of the windmill and stepped out on to the platform. She was struck by one of the mill’s sails and was killed instantly. Millicent’s ghost has reportedly been seen standing at a first floor window. Some versions suggest that her spectre is headless.
