The Foxford Mills
Foxford, or Beal Easa (ford mouth of the waterfall), is situated on the River Moy and overlooked by the Ox Mountains to the north-east. The mill employed over 200 people in the 1930's.
The Foxford mill conditions were described as among the best of the period. At the beginning of the twentieth century Scottish designer, Thomas Turnbull arrived at Foxford Woolen Mill. Turnbull was the first to introduce color to the mill products. New colorful designed tweeds and plaid patterned rugs were added to the production of white fabrics and white blankets.
The mill now specializes in weaving and finishing of quality wool products and is renowned throughout the world.
