Earlshill Colliery and Powder House, Slieveardagh, County Tipperary

 

The Earlshill Colliery and powder house Slieveardagh, is part of an enormous industrial coal mining landscape that once stretched from Tipperary to Castlecomer. The powder house is the last example of a Cornish powder house from a coal mine that survives in Ireland. The Slieveardagh Mining Group want to preserve and protect the important industrial heritage of the locality, and to raise awareness of the social history of the area.
