            I thought Marlborough Bks was now McKee (there's a plaque inside the
            main gate on Blackhorse Avenue with the details of the old name).

            Will have a look when I am back again

            I think Richmond Barracks was another barracks which is now gone.
            Clancy is up on Islandbridge. Dunno if this qualifies as Inchicore or not.
            The resident Dubs on the board will be able to confirm or deny. That's
            me assuming you are not a Dub yourself...

              Richmond Barracks

              This is an interesting photograph because of all of the barracks that existed in Dublin, Richmond is the one to suffer most from demolition with only a few recognisable traces of its existence. It is most definitely not Clancy but the Richmond barracks which existed east of Inchicore road -- the Garrison chapel, still in use as a church, is still visible.

              One of the first British responses to the outbreak of the 1916 rising came from Richmond when a party of the Royal Irish Regiment marched off to investigate only to run into heavy fire from the rebels deployed in the old South Dublin Union (now James St hospital|).
