Eugene and Felix McConville's family have been involved in the scutching of flax for linen production for countless years. Together these brothers work to keep this century's old craft alive for future generations by offering tours of their flax museum and water powered flax scutch mill near Dromore in Co Down, Northern Ireland. This is the last water powered scutch mill still working today. We had the pleasure of visiting with Eugene and Felix McConville and got a first hand look at this mighty mill in action.
