history of iron mining

The iron works were re-opened by the OReilly brothers in 1788 after coal had been discovered in the area. This was the first time in Ireland that coal was used in the smelting process of iron. The iron works closed in 1838 but mining continued in Arigna as a major enterprise and source of employment until 1990 when the last of the mines closed.
