        I knew about the one in Athlone, but I should have known about this one, given it was on my beat.

          This was on the market for £575k a few years back. Only built in 1990.

          Not sure if it sold or not...

            In the South East corner of Merrion Square in Dublin there are the remains of a private WW2 bunker , built (paid for) by the residents of the homes around the square who owned the park at the time , it looks like a grassy mound these days .
