Burnhouse was the name of a company that handled the disposal of dead and wornout animals (presumably for pet food). They had a small work-plant at Ballynew. It was in full swing in the 1950s and handled cut-up shark pieces from Achill also. When the green lorry passed through the town on hot days, the smell was something terrible! I dont know when the plant closed in Ballynew but I do know that the Burnhouse company was still going strong in Ballinasloe into the 1970s.
