Flame – Gasworks Museum

Ireland’s only preserved Victorian gasworks that opened in 1855, and supplied the town with gas made from coal until 1967. It was subsequently used to distribute gas piped from Belfast until its closure in 1987, and is one of only three preserved gasworks in Britain and Ireland.
