Likebla or Lykebla Water Mill - Now Likbla ?

‘The precise location of a medieval watermill in the townland of Lickbla has not been identified. A 1558 land grant to Sir Richard Nugent, Baron of Delvin included ‘a water-mill in Likebla’ (Morrin 1861, 395). There appears to have been two mills located in Lickbla. In 1647 a fine of £15 was levied on a group of mills in Co. Westmeath to pay Captain Ignatius Nugent of the Irish Confederate Army. The sum of £3 5s 4d. was levied on 'Lady of Glancoe, or her tenants, two mills in Lickbla' (Cal. S.P. Ire., 624). The 19th century corn mills beside Lickbla House may have been located on or close to the site of the medieval mill.’
