Ten years ago I would have known very little about Dundalk but when members of the family moved there that all changed and now I am enchanted by the town, it's people and the hinterland. The "Dutch boy" is not Dutch but looks like the images of such boys from the last century. The windmill is a fine looking example of such astructure though it had already fallen into disuse and disrepair when Mr. French went calling. I have no idea of the mills location in the town but no doubt we can find it?
