08. Kiltormer/Ballinasloe Road

Killimor Heritage Trail

We now move up past the traffic lights. The exit to the right, the L4322, brings you to Kiltormer and Ballinasloe. The Hurling Pitch, Gymnasium and Holy Family Nursing Home are located on this road, within walking distance of Killimor Village.

A double bullaun stone can be seen.

A further point of interest is that there was a mill on the left in Slateford, called Hardy’s Mill. The Valuation House Books (1832 – 1840) show Joseph Hardy was in occupation of a corn mill here. Unfortunately, little or nothing remains today to show that there was ever a mill here. Should one wish to drive further on to the townland of Loughil, a double bullaun stone can be seen. According to local tradition, the holes in the stone are the impressions made by St. Iomar’s knees as he knelt and prayed.
