For more than half a century Bord Na Mona and the Power Station provided work and opportunities to over five thousand people developing the bogs, harvesting Milled Peat and Generating Electricity. At its peak it was one of the biggest employers in Mayo and attracted many workers from all over Ireland. The landscape was changed dramatically with major drainage and a field system on the virgin bogs, also the building of the generating station and cooling tower. New technology and machinery was introduced which meant skilled personnel, training and development for operators. Also the weather played a part in peat production in meeting targets. Peat production and electricity generation had ceased by 2006 signalling the end of an era especially with the demolition of the cooling tower, a focal point on your entry to Erris. Crossmolina Bord Na Mona / ESB Commemoration Committee are in the process of writing up the rich history of Owinenny its challenges, benefits, social and economic contribution to North Mayo in particular. All-ready a committee is in place (retired former workers of both companies) and a researcher/writer is engaged. Both BnM / ESB head office are supporting this Project. To fully appreciate what Oweninny works did for the many employees, villages and towns in its catchment area the committee would appreciate if you would share your stories, photos, memorabilia, in order to record "The Life and Times of Owninney."
