Friars Mill Road, Mullingar, birthplace of author Jospehine Hart (jnset)

The town of Mullingar has very few literary landmarks deserving international recognition, but unfortunately, this week it lost its most important one – chiefly because it was not a protected structure.
Westmeath Topic has learned that Westmeath County Council placed no value whatsoever on the building. When we asked a Council official about the demolition, they said the developer was fully within his rights in demolishing the house.
