About the Area
Looking out over the water and Dwyer’s Road, which named after William Dwyer, founder of Midleton Worsted Mills. The road was originally called Boreen Oatencake and is said to have taken its name from the generosity of a local inhabitant who fed the poor with oat cakes during the Great Famine (1845-1850).
