The Man of War Military Barracks

by Hugh Halpin – February 2022

The paper addresses the background to barracks building in Ireland
before focusing on one of the smaller barracks near the Man of War. In
use from about 1776 to 1824, the paper addresses its construction,
administration, the army regiments billeted there and local militias
linked to it. The social and economic effect on the local population
is also explored.
