Monaghan barracks has of late last week, been aquired by the VEC with a view to re-opening the Barracks as a third level college, i wonder how much money changed hands for it? considering the Dept of Education is in a heap too, and that the Dept of Defence have still been paying the bills for the Bks since its closure in January, lights and heating have been on since the last troops left, and Private security contract on it, lets hope the new owners look after it now, its a real sad sight in its present condition, grass up to the windows and tumble weeds blowing everywhere, as for the football pitch, it was only recently cut since january,
