        There are members of our unit there this week. (Can't tell you why for operational reasons)

        The reports that have come back are not good. Anyone thet has been ther in the past couple of years will know how rundown the place was. Well now the place is worse.

        No Gym, mess or other recreational area (sauna???????). Using the old mizzen huts for male billets and accomadation block for Officers and females. Portacabin for toilet / shower.

        Even the rats and fleas have vacated the place.

            Has it no mess at all??? Do any PDF units live there or is it unoccupied for the most of the year?

                And I only highlight the good points!!!

                (I say again for the hard of reading.)

                most recent intel issued tuesday 3rd july @ 22.00hrs say Mess in Ballymullen Barracks Tralee closed!!!!!


                I heard a certain unit comanders provided canned refreshments for sale in the old mess building but this is an unsubstantiated report.

                But sure there are lots of pubs that are much nicer

                    Lads, it's prime real estate like a lot of other locations dotted around the country. Just wait and see.

                            only after a certain medics camp.....It was actually proven afterwards that the place was never infested with anything other than what the medics imported.......
