- Lime-burning: -Two or three old lime-kilns around Ballyglass and Hillswood. Lynskey’s was in use up to fifty years ago. It was shaped out into a round hole on the side of a hill. It was nine feet deep and it was four feet wide at the bottom. It was wide again in the middle and narrow in the top. There was a small opening about a foot from the bottom. The kiln was lined with mortar and stones. Then the line-kiln was filled up with layers of limestone. Between each layer of limestone was a layer of turf. Then the turf was set on fire and kept burning. Sometimes for a week day and night until all the stone was burned into lime. Then the lime was taken out, brought to market and sold for about 4/- per barrel.Tras-scríofa ag duine dár meitheal tras-scríbhneoirí deonacha.
