The BBC has reported that a building on the Herdman's Mill site in Sion Mills went on fire earlier today. Roisin Connolly of the Sion Mills Buildings Preservation Trust is quoted:
"The fire is focused on the front offices of the Mourne mill - the large industrial factories that were occupied between 1989 and 2004 when the last mill workers were paid off.
"It does not affect the old part of the mill which is B plus listed and is at the other end of the site.
"The building on fire is deserted at present, it is derelict."
If anyone has any photographs of the aftermath, I would be happy to add them to this site. Contact details here.
