In 1857 Tom Gallaher founded the Gallaher Tobacco business in Londonderry, Northern Ireland. He acquired the old York Road Linen Mill in Belfast. By 1896 the Belfast factory had become the largest tobacco factory in the world.
In 2014, Multimedia Heritage published a DVD of the recounted experiences of local women who had worked in Gallaher's factory before its closure.
