A memorial stone was erected recently on the new road between the train station and Mount street, it is to commemorate the people who died in Claremorris Work House 1851 – 1918, the Mount Street Fever Refuge pre 1851 and unnamed infants who died in the community.
 
The ruins of the bacon factory is located on the Ballindine Road.

  1. Are there any records of the people who lived here? We believe my 2nd Great Grandmother – Mary Hughes, died here in 1909.
