  • Fort Dunree

    Anyone ever do their camp in Fort Dunree? I was up there a few weeks ago. Nice museum. Huts are all in ruins, great views.

        There was an urban myth about a young officer in Magee (Kildare) in the 60s who made a derogatory comment about a lady in the officers mess one night. The lady in question happened to be the CO's wife and the young man found himself paraded the next day to be told that he was being transferred to Fort Dunree. When he inquired as to why he was being transferred to Dunree, the reply was "because they closed Lenan"
