About Mullingar, Westmeath
Mullingar; An Muileann gCearr, meaning “the left-handed mill” is the county town of County Westmeath in Ireland.
Traditionally a market town serving the large agricultural hinterland. It had a tradition of cattle-trading up until 2003, when its cattle market was closed for development of a mixed commercial and residential scheme called Market Point.
The accent is useful for Doubt and Outside Mullingar by John Patrick Shanley.
The town is also associated with Irish author James Joyce, who was an occasional visitor to Mullingar during his youth. James referred to Mullingar in three of his novels, Ulysses, Stephen Hero, and Finnegans Wake.
