Handing down traditions is such an important part of keeping our heritage alive and in County Meath, Martry Mill, operated by a waterwheel, has stood the test of time. The oldest record of a mill at the Martry site, dates back to 1323, but the Tallon family has been producing flour there since 1859.
Now the fifth generation of Millers, James Tallon junior is producing an award-winning product in the very same way his ancestors did before him.
Also in this piece is archive from the Hands Series. HANDS is a unique, multi-award winning series of documentaries on Irish crafts. Made by filmmaking team, David and Sally Shaw-Smith.
The very walls of the mill are ingrained with history and Mary Fanning headed to this very special place to meet the family.
