This area enters so much into the history of the Abbey Fishermen. The photographs here show scenes of the great Lax Weir, Corbally Mill, Caislaen na Corran, the Old Foot Bridge, the Mill Stream and Gabbett's Grove. Some of these photographs are old, some new.

In its time Corbally Mill was one of the finest water mills in the Country. The building of the dam and mill race were considered an exceptional engineering feat. Wheat for the Mill was transported vie the river in the early stages from Custom House docks, as there was no direct road link with Limerick.
