Description: South Dublin Village Walks - Clondalkin Stop 2: the Mill Centre. The Mill Shopping Centre is located on the site of the former Clondalkin Paper Mills. The first paper mill on this site was erected in the early 1800s. By 1982 it was the last remaining paper mill in the State. For decades, the mill was beset by industrial disputes between the workforce (which principally consisted of local residents) and the management. It culminated in a workers’ occupation to stop its closure. This lasted a year, followed by a hunger strike by two workers, Dáil debates and marches in the City Centre. The mills reopened temporarily as Leinster Paper Mills, and in 1987 they closed for good after a long and protracted struggle to stay open.
