A Century Of Experience
Nestled in the scenic farm country in County Kilkenny, Ireland, Connolly's RED MILLS has been the home of the Connolly family business since 1908. Michael Connolly emigrates to Long Island in New York in the 1840s, working as a "head lad" for a French horse trainer based there. In 1866 he inherits a bakery back home in Ireland and returns.
In 1908 the company William Connolly & Sons Ltd is established in Goresbridge, County Kilkenny. Michael buys the mill for £400 and the dwelling house a year later for his younger son William for £500.
