The Allman family were an enterprising one having among other businesses cotton mill in the late 18th century.

In it heyday was one of the principal distilleries in Ireland employing hundreds and taking a large amount of grain grown locally, it had its own railway sidings connected to the Cork and Bandon railway.    Inter family litigation in the early 20th century did not help its survival.  Bandon Mart on the Bandon Cork road is built on the site.
