Batchelors building Finisklin is located in the civil parish of Emlaghfad in County Sligo.
The factory was built in 1905.
The building was originally a maize mill and grain silo. It was later bought by Batchelors and used as a food distribution centre.
This building is thought to be one of Ireland's earliest examples of the Hennebique construction system, a method of reinforcing concrete.
