Archive Material Requests
M.M.O.I. collects large amounts of mill related historical information.
Our archivist spends many hours on these requests and therefore the society has decided to charge €50 for information supplied to non-members.
We can only answer queries concerning membership or events by email.
All other enquiries should be made directly to our President & Archivist
Mr. William Hogg.
